Crown Valley Community Center Opens
The City of Laguna Niguel and its City Council held an open house at the Crown Valley Community Center (CVCC) at Crown Valley Park on June 26 after postponing the initially scheduled opening due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The opening of the CVCC represents the completion of the Crown Valley Park Improvement Project, the single most significant capital improvement investment by the City of Laguna Niguel in its 31-year history of incorporation. Since its completion, the CVCC has received two distinguished awards: the 2020 Outstanding Urban or Land Development Project Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Orange County Branch; and the Excellence in Facility Design Award from the California Park and Recreation Society (CPRS).
The CVCC will serve over 240,000 people each year through facility rentals for special events, meetings, and programs. At 30,000-square feet and three stories tall, the building has multi-purpose classrooms, a dedicated art room, fitness room, dance room, collaborative tech room, multi-purpose room with a 300-person dining capacity, and a catering kitchen. The lower aquatics level has locker rooms and classrooms that open to the pool deck, while the upper level features an outdoor rooftop patio overlooking the community pool, providing views of the Niguel Botanical Preserve. The CVCC will also house the city’s Parks and Recreation Department staff.< Back to Full Issue Print Article
