The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center of Boston is the largest private, nonprofit community center in Massachusetts. The transformation of this once abandoned six-acre Dorchester site into a new 90,000 square foot facility offering intergenerational state-of-the-art services has completely revitalized the area. This comprehensive community resource attracts area residents for arts and education, workforce development, fitness, sports, and emotional and spiritual care; making it a vibrant hub of the community. The contemporary design is sympathetic to the size, scale and materials of the neighborhood, and creates a lively extension of the community, an open space of diverse activity, and an interior village where people can see and be seen. Design features include a 500-seat dual court NCAA regulation gymnasium, ropes course and climbing wall space, full cardio and fitness equipment areas, recreational pool and outdoor playground, a 250-seat chapel/community theatre, culinary arts teaching kitchen, and a synthetic turf multi-use athletic field and playground.
