The KROC Center is a partnership between The Salvation Army, The Kroc family, and the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative. Copley Wolff Design Group’s design involved three critical components: the urban streetscape, a safe neighborhood play space, and a sports field.
The streetscape creates an urban wall to Dudley Street with the use of decorative pavements, new street lighting, street trees, and vertical markers; the play space provides a controlled and secure play area with age appropriate play structures, a performance stage, gardening space, active court recreation, decorative fencing, and unique play surface designs; and the sports field is an all-weather surface with special netting masts to control ball flight onto Dudley Street.
