The original 1970’s Foster City recreation center was an indoor/outdoor space connected by outdoor patios. It had large wind enclosed areas for childcare and pottery uses. The architectural style inside was to be ‘Polynesian’ and to this day you will see that style mirrored in homes across Foster City, but the city has more or less given up on that style and theme for Foster City civic buildings. It was eventually re-done in the 1990’s and now, again, in the 2020’s.
