As an urban facility that include a multi-purpose building, a swim center, tennis courts, recreational fields for softball and soccer and a passive park area, the center has a strong street presence. Its design focuses on its orientation and massing, affording the facilities views from the police station, continuing education center and library, and thereby creating a safe and pedestrian-friendly center. Similarly, passive and active uses within the facility are visually connected, allowing parents to supervise their children and therefore encouraging family use.

Finally, the center's main structures incorporate color as well playful volumes and angles in a composition that is inviting and user-friendly for all ages.
