The Lone Tree Community Wellness Center serves as a gathering place for this town of 1,400 people. The project originated with the Lone Tree Community School District’s need for a wrestling room and full-sized gym. The wrestling team operated from a poorly-insulated metal building while the basketball team squeezed into an undersized space next door. By partnering, the Community School District and the City raised the necessary funds for the facility, which the school owns and operates for shared use. In the new building, a raised indoor track surrounds the wrestling/exercise room’s perch overlooking the basketball court. As a valuable community resource, the building deepens residents’ roots and encourages the town’s growth.
