KENNEDY YOUTH CENTER
Kennedy Youth Center is a conversion of a community center within the 21 acres of Charles F Kennedy park in Union City. Sculpted benches, outdoor cafe, dance and performance amphitheater and skateboard ramps activate the exterior use of the teen center while creating a strong programmatic connection and abundant educational resource from exterior to interior. The Teen center will be retrofitted in two phases. Phase 1, was completed in May of 2018, while Phase 2 includes a new green roof with wild flowers for animals and insects, outdoor classroom, solar panels and overlook into the park with the Hayward Hills beyond.
