Mackle Park community center preps for $12 million, “green building” expansion

— Marco Island is preparing for its second “green building” design in the city. The first was a public works facility still in the design phase and next may be the Mackle Park Community Center.

Reconstruction of the Community Center at Mackle Park was the main topic of discussion at the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee meeting, Tuesday.

Mackle Park’s Community Center upgrades and expansion are part of the longterm plan for the park system. The structure is expected to be bigger than originally planned-- about twice the size.

The two-story building still under preliminary design planning by BSSW Architect may include an indoor gym, indoor basketball courts and an indoor running track looking over the gymnasium.

Check back to and the Friday print edition of the Marco Eagle for more on the design plans.
