The City of El Paso’s Capital Improvement Department has scheduled three community meetings to raise community awareness about plans for the Chelsea, Eastside Regional Park and Lionel Forti Regional Family Aquatics Centers.
“The City of El Paso is taking great strides to ensure that we revamp and modernize our aquatics program,” said Tracy Novak, Director of Parks and Recreation. “To achieve that goal, the City is replacing outdoor rectangular pools that have outlived their useful life, and are being replaced with state of the art outdoor aquatic facilities that will serve the entire community.”
The facilities are currently under development and will be located at the following locations: Chelsea Regional Family Aquatics Center at 900 Radford Road; Lionel Forti Regional Family Aquatics Center at 1225 Giles Road, and the Eastside Family Park Aquatics Center near the intersection Montana Avenue and Hueco Club Road.
The regional family aquatics centers are funded by the 2012 Quality of Life Bond Program and will include the following amenities and services:
- A 6,000 square foot facility
