The Sprinker Recreation Center sits at the heart of the Spanaway Regional Park complex comprised of the Recreation Center, Bresemann Forest, and Spanaway Park and Golf Course. The master plan for the Sprinker Recreation Center expands the variety of current uses and increases capacity, enhances pedestrian connectivity, improves sustainability, and creates a safe, inviting experience. Proposed improvements support major events with increased spectator viewing, expanded support facilities, and a clear separation of uses so multiple activities and events can occur. New indoor uses include a multi-purpose gymnasium space. Enhancements to the ice arena, tennis courts, and multi-purpose rooms inside the facility are designed to improve safety and functionality, maximize use, and better support staff to manage the site while catering to a wider audience than exists today. New outdoor uses include a multi-purpose athletic field, a ‘spray-n-play’ park, expanded playground, and accessible trails throughout the site. Improved pedestrian connectivity to the park and to the building lead visitors to the main entrances for the Recreation Center and the surrounding site.

Sprinker Recreation Center is located adjacent to Bresemann Forest and Spanaway Park and Golf Course. This open space complex consists of 325 acres that provide the public with a wide range of current and potential uses. Sprinker provides a recreation center, formal athletic fields and outdoor play spaces, while Bresemann Forest and Spanaway Park provide access to dense woodland habitat and shoreline access to Spanaway Lake. The close proximity of these parks enables a larger potential for the complex as a whole. Pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure would provide connectivity between the parks and the surrounding neighborhoods and serve as an invaluable asset to Pierce County. Spanaway Regional Park planning efforts consider central connectivity in regards to pedestrian and cyclist recreation, as well as community access. This improvement study seeks to keep the larger complex in mind while designing to the specific needs of Sprinker Recreation Center. Proposed Improvements of Spanaway Regional Park Include: 1‡

Gateway entrance to Spanaway Park includes vehicular gateways and safe, accessible pedestrian connectivity.

‡ Enhancements to forested areas in Bresemann and Spanaway encourage events such as fun runs, day/summer camps, and educational tours and attract new users while meeting the sustainability goals of the parks.

2

3‡

Spanaway Creek restoration includes shoreline planting and habitat restoration. New/improved pedestrian access and clear wayfinding signage provides passive recreation and exploration.

4‡

Increase visibility between the parking areas, trails, and the waterfront support and encourage the expanded use of all areas of the park.

5‡

Broaden uses within central activity areas to offer a wide variety of trending recreation uses, such as disc golf, exercise routes, ultimate Frisbee, and an expanded walking route.

6‡

Expand and enhance waterfront access and programming to support new uses such as beach volleyball, and improvements for play areas, beach areas, and canoe and kayak access points. Construction of a new fishing pier and restoration of the south beach will help separate boating and fishing uses from pedestrian areas. 9


Harry Sprinker Recreation Center is known as the recreational centerpiece of Pierce County due to the extensive amount of available indoor and outdoor activities. The park was acquired over 40 years ago with neighboring Spanaway Park and Bresemann Forest to form a regional complex unique to the Pierce County park system. Since opening in 1976, the 30-acre Sprinker Recreation Center has been home to hundreds of sports camps, athletic teams, individual uses, and community events.

BRESEMANN FOREST

Sprinker Recreation Center’s outdoor amenities include athletic fields, outdoor tennis courts, a large skate park, two basketball courts, a small playground, and two outdoor climbing rocks. Indoor uses include a full size ice arena, indoor tennis courts, racquetball/handball courts, meeting rooms, and concession areas, along with a variety of support facilities in a 74,500 square foot facility. It is estimated that over 120,000 people use this facility annually. Without a plan for continued growth, the Sprinker Recreation Center may continue to meet the immediate needs for current uses, but will miss the opportunity to expand those ovide a uses, accommodate new community interests, and provide more cohesive, safe, and unified park experience.

EXISTING CONDITIONS

R E C R E AT I O N C E N T E R The Recreation Center houses indoor activities, including an ice arena, four indoor tennis courts, five racquetball/ handball courts, and multiple meeting rooms that host a variety of activities throughout the year. The full size ice arena draws people from all over the county for leagues, team training and games, and public use. The ice arena, meeting rooms, and tennis courts are in high demand year-round, while the racquetball courts are significantly under-utilized.

BASEBALL/ SOFTBALL FIELDS Eight natural turf fields support baseball and softball with soccer overlays. They are in relatively good shape given the high intensity of use, but difficult to schedule year-round or meet current demand. Some but not all fields include outdoor lighting. The fields are used for practices, games, tournaments, and sports camps for all ages and throughout the spring and summer seasons with bleachers, dugouts and other support facilities.

C O N C E S S I O N S TA N D The concession stand is open during the summer months to support games and tournaments primarily related to field use, though the adjacent skate park and playground users have access when it is open as well. The concession stand provides the only exterior restrooms available to the public.

14


S K AT E PA R K Sprinker is home to one of the state’s largest skate parks and includes its own entrance, viewing area, and covered picnic tables. The skate park is fully fenced with controlled access through the main office of the Recreation Center, though access winds through the indoor tennis courts and outside maintenance yard to reach the skate park. The skate park is only open during Recreation Center hours.

TENNIS COURTS The Recreation Center is home to the only indoor tennis facility in Pierce County with four indoor courts. Six outdoor tennis courts are also available, allowing players flexibility depending on weather conditions. The tennis courts are in good condition and are supported by a pro shop, but lack any permanent indoor or outdoor spectator areas to support major events.

PA R K I N G Parking at the Recreation Center includes over 800 stalls with entrances off Military Road S and C Street S. While this allows easy access during major events, it remains a large expanse of unused pavement during much of the year. Recent improvements have included a porous pavement system in part of the parking area. The parking lot is also used as space for large community events, including a classic car show, Food Fest, and others. 15


CLIMBING ROCKS There are two climbing rocks at the Recreation Center, the Spire Rock and another nearby climbing rock, both man-made structures. The climbing rocks are a popular training spot and home to classes, youth camps and free climbers with several routes available from beginner to advanced skills. The area is heavily used, but located in a more wooded area with minimal visibility to or from the rest of the site.

TRAILS Trails at the Recreation Center are limited to paved pathways from the parking lot to the major activity areas within the center of the site. There are no sidewalks along adjacent streets and no perimeter trail around the site. Informal soft surface trails wind through the adjacent Bresemann Forest and connect to the open space around the Recreation Center.

MAINTENANCE AREA The maintenance area is an uncovered storage and equipment yard between the Recreation Center building and the Skate Park. Vehicular access is available from the main parking lot with gated access from the yard directly into the central open space of the site.

16


ENTRY & PLAZA The main entrance to the building is defined by a large overhang, glass walls and strong visual presence to the parking lot. The main entrance to the site, however, is limited to a single chain-link gate in the perimeter fence around the site. The gated site entrance leads to an asphalt plaza adjacent to the concession stand and basketball courts offering little shade, buffers, or visual respite from the high-intensity uses of the site. Site navigation is difficult due to the lack of a distinct entry.

P L AY G R O U N D The existing playground is tucked into the far side of the athletic fields and central plaza area. It is designed to accommodate multiple ages with structured play equipment and safety surfacing. However, it offers a limited capacity given the scale and intensity of surrounding uses, has a limited variety of play opportunities, and is not fully accessible in its current location.

PICNIC AREA The picnic area is located near the concession stand and is used primarily to support families and teams during games and tournament play on the adjacent fields. Picnic tables and wooden planters offer a place to gather and provide a focal point in the open space between the different activities at the site, but there is limited capacity, no opportunity for weather protection or support for larger groups.

PROS Plan Update As part of Pierce County’s 2015 Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan Update, Pierce County Parks launched a process to collect information about the existing infrastructure, demographics, current programs and services to support parks and recreation county-wide. The public outreach process associated with the PROS Plan update also gave county residents the opportunity to provide input about park and recreation needs, including Sprinker Recreation Center. The public outreach process included a county-wide telephone survey, an online survey, and a series of open houses held across the county where early concepts for proposed improvements to the Sprinker Recreation Center were shown to the public. The public priorities for parks and recreation facilities county-wide included waterfront access, regional trails, conserving wooded habitat and natural areas, and providing more family activities. Continued capital investment in the acquisition of land, design and construction of undeveloped parks, and expanding existing parks was the most effective way to maintain the quality of the parks system while adding capacity as the county’s population continues to grow. As a result, high priority projects should include the following: ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡

20

Leverage the existing system Provide adequate capitol and maintenance costs to support improvements Increase capacity and diversity of uses Maximize the cost to benefit ratio of proposed improvements.


PROS Plan Vision and Mission: To be a leader in creating livable communities by providing opportunities for people to: Connect with nature - Maintain and create opportunities for people to experience the beauty of nature in the County’s robust park and trail system. Connect people to the natural environment and help foster a sense of stewardship. Live healthy lifestyles - Facilitate and promote a variety of recreation and volunteer opportunities that are inclusive to a wide range of interests and physical abilities. Enjoy vibrant community spaces - Renovate or create park amenities that are flexible, beautiful, and inclusive. Ensure land acquisition is thoughtful, and continue to engage residents and review social and demographic trends that may affect the evolution of spaces. Learn about sustainable practices - Integrate sustainable practices, ecological design, and/or green building techniques into new construction and renovation of existing facilities.

Case Studies A series of case studies were developed early in the design process to identify opportunities and constraints of the site and develop initial concepts for proposed improvements. Improvements considered pedestrian connectivity (arrows), gateways and entrances into the site (yellow), and more flexible open space for a diversity of new uses (green). Opportunities to connect to the neighborhood, provide sustainable design solutions, and reduce long-term maintenance needs were also important considerations. Concept C provided the greatest flexibility of open space and created a more generous, welcoming entrance. It would also open up views to improve safety and security through the central part of the site. As a result, this concept was selected to be developed further, along with elements from the other case studies, into a preferred Concept Plan for improvements to the Sprinker Recreation Center.

Online Open House An Online Open House was conducted to receive feedback from county residents on the parks system in general, as well as on the proposed improvements to the Sprinker Recreation Center. A rich array of comments were provided in response to park priorities, vision for the future, desired recreation programs, strategies to create a sustainable parks system, and other topics. According to the survey, six out of the seven park amenities used most by Pierce County residents can be found at Sprinker. Enhancements to the park entrances with the proposed ‘spray-n-play’ area and an improved trail system surrounding the Recreation Center were the highest priorities for proposed improvements. Enhancements to existing facilities ranked lower among the list of priorities.

Entrance Plaza

$3,143,500

The central entry plaza creates a new gateway along the main axis into the park. A new entry sign with accent planting, a grove of trees, and central lawn punctuate the entry and help direct visitors into the park.

The spray park is envisioned as an active, engaging play space that integrates a variety of activities with both traditional and natural spray features and provides interest year round. Gathering and seating areas, inlcuding picnic areas, shelters, and a large open lawn, will surround the spray park to support families and visitors to the park. 2

Central Area

$2,500,000

Two existing baseball fields will be replaced by a new multipurpose field with synthetic surfacing to accommodate high intensity use while diversifying the type of activities and ages served at the park. The new multipurpose field will host baseball, soccer, lacrosse, and ultimate frisbee.

The central plaza and open space will be renovated with a new large play area to serve a variety of ages and abilities. New group picnic shelters, picnic tables, open lawn areas, and two new basketball courts will further expand the variety of uses at the park while better supporting existing uses and attracting additional visitors. A comprehensive trail system will connect this area to the rest of the site through a series of formal and informal paths.

ENTRANCE PLAZA & S P R AY- N - P L AY

The entrance plaza enhancement would be a gateway that welcomes users into the site. A drop off area, central lawn, grove of trees, and spray park would expand capacity of the existing site and help direct users towards the central plaza and interior areas.

M U LT I - P U R P O S E F I E L D

The addition of an all-weather multipurpose field would allow a variety of sports, like soccer, football, lacrosse and rugby, to take place concurrent with the adjacent ball field use. This adds significant flexibility and capacity to the overall site, including year-round active uses for all ages.

3

CENTRAL PLAZA

The central plaza improvements interior to the site include an updated playground for all levels and abilities of play, and a variety of experiences. This area also acts as the primary corridor that leads to the sports fields and perimeter trails with additional open space, picnic areas, and group shelters.

Pedestrian connections enhance the visitor experience from the moment they arrive at the Recreation Center. Improved connectivity between the parking lot and the main entrance into the site and building is proposed along with connections to the adjacent neighborhoods and the Bresemann Forest. Trails include soft and hard surface options with a variety of loops and routes through the site.

PA R K I N G E N T R A N C E

Renovating the existing fields into a fully lighted and all-weather surfacing will allow the Recreation Center to meet current and future needs of county residents. This would also allow the fields to be re-oriented into a cloverleaf pattern to provide greater efficiency and a central place for players and spectators to gather.
