Pip Moyer Recreation Center at Truxtun Park

Annapolis, Maryland

The new Recreation Center, within Truxtun Park, was designed to the LEED silver credit requirements. Critical site design elements that supported the green building effort included a green roof for rainwater harvesting and energy conservation, 30,000 gallon underground cistern for harvesting roof runoff and condensate collection for ball field irrigation, and a complex orchestration of curbless bioretention and microbioretention within the parking lots.  Jenny Smeltzer, Annapolis Landscape Architects (ALA) Partner, served as the project landscape architect responsible for the design development and construction document phase of work.
