Project Overview 

The Purdue RecWell Outdoor Space Master Plan will provide a framework exploring opportunities regarding outdoor recreation and wellness facilities. The process includes an analysis of programming and potential development sites to develop a strategy that meets current and future recreation, health and wellness needs. The Plan will include a needs assessment and utilization analysis of existing outdoor facilities. Student and user group input will be incorporated through the process to guide the master planning team.


The vision for Gold Fields and Pickett Park is to consider these outdoor venues as a single destination that provide a variety of outdoor spaces and activities to meet a diverse student population with a wide range of recreational needs, while still allowing space for future campus initiatives. The propsed recreation facilities will operate more efficiently and utilize less space. 

Future Plans include:

  • Convert natural grass fields to synthetic turf
  • Create a Student Hub and additional student gathering spaces
  • Create a Sand Volleyball Complex
  • Convert Hull Drill Field to synthetic turf
  • Add multi-use walks and trail loops
  • Add pickleball courts
  • Enhance Pickett Park
  • Embrace Todd's Creek and Enhance Wellbeing Space at Pickett Park
  • Add a flex turf area
  • Relocate football parking 
  • Improve disc golf
  • Add practice fields
  • Add parking
