Transportation check-in at 12:30pm if needed

Transportation provided: leave from the Sacramento Convention Center or meet us at our first stop at 1:00pm, the City of Elk Grove Aquatic Complex

Join us as we provide educational guidance on how to read, interpret, understand, and use project drawings practically for programming and planning purposes.

This EduTour highlights two NEW Sacramento County facilities.  We will take participants to the Pat O'Brien Community Center located in the Southgate Recreation & Park District and to the City of Elk Grove Aquatic Complex.  Discussions will include the design phase while covering how to interpret and read program drawings as well as the practical use these drawings can provide to staff who need to program the facility.

Tour Coordinator: Richard Lincoln,


Your Learning Take-Aways:

  • Familiarize (by touring) the new City of Elk Grove Aquatic Center that will be operated by Cosumnes Community Services District Aquatic Department as well as summarize the partnership between the agencies that brought this regional aquatic center to the community of Elk Grove
  • Identify technical terminology, definitions, and receive direction, guidance and tips on how to understand, read, infer, and inter-relate project drawings
  • Familiarize (by touring) the new Pat O'Brien Community Center, the Aquatic Center, and Southgate Recreation & Park District Support Facility to experience new design strategies and challenges that went into completing this project
  • Explain a practical approach for understanding project drawings, how they are linked between design disciplines, and how staff can utilize these drawings to prepare, plan, and program in advance at their new facility spaces
  • Participants will leave the Edutour with the confidence and knowledge-base to understand how project drawings are assembled, used, and what resources they offer staff to assist in planning, programming and preparing for use of these facilities and spaces


Who Should Attend?

People involved in design/build/operations/programming of facilities. Park and recreation employees, involved in construction, regardless of whether they are working in the field or in the office, must know how to review, understand and interpret project drawings. This includes those who become responsible for the operations of the public facility. This is also applicable to students and new professionals in landscape architecture and construction management.
