On Saturday, December 17, Henry Bros. Co. joined village officials and park department representatives for the groundbreaking of a new 25,000 S.F. sports arena addition to the Village of Orland Hills Community Recreation Center. The addition will feature an indoor turf field that can be converted to a hard surface to accommodate both soccer and basketball play. Batting cages, a fitness center, and a concession stand will also be included in the new addition.
The project was designed by Planera Architects of Homewood. Completion is expected in summer 2023. The Recreation Center, at 16553 Haven Avenue, will remain open for activities during construction.
This project adds to Henry Bros. Co.’s extensive park and recreation experience.
