Community Meeting Set for Eastside Regional Family Aquatics Center

The City of El Paso’s Capital Improvement Department is hosting a community meeting to provide residents with information on the final design of Eastside Regional Family Aquatics Center.

The aquatic center project, which is nearly finished with design, will be located near the intersection Montana Avenue and Hueco Club Road in East El Paso.

The aquatics center is part of the Eastside Regional Park, El Paso’s largest park.

Via a news release, city officials say, “The City of El Paso is taking great strides to revamp and modernize its aquatics program. To achieve that goal, the City is replacing outdoor rectangular pools that have outlived their useful life with state-of-the-art outdoor aquatic facilities that will serve the entire community.”

The City will also oversee the construction of two other regional family aquatics facilities the Chelsea Regional Family Aquatics Center located at 900 Radford Road and the Lionel Forti Regional Family Aquatics Center located at 1225 Giles Road.

Among the proposed amenities and services for the aquatics center at the Eastside Regional Park are: a 6,000 plus square foot facility, a zero depth entry water play area, lazy river water play area, water slides, a recreational pool, toddler splash area, cabanas that can be reserved for events and gathering, concessions and party room and a bathhouse.

The Regional Aquatics Facilities are funded by the 2012 Quality of Life Bond Program and are part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to enhance the quality of life for business, residents and visitors through the creation of recreational, cultural and educational environments.

City Awards Design-Build Pre-Construction Services for Eastside Sports Complex

During Monday’s regular City Council session, members took the first step in the development and construction of the $10 million budgeted Eastside Sports Complex, and awarded the preconstruction services phase to Jordan Foster Construction Company.

The project was awarded under “design-build”, which groups the design and construction into one contract, which allows the City to better coordinate the entire project from start to finish.

“Parks and open spaces are so important for the health and quality of life of our community. Today’s award of these design-build services are a significant step in providing the Eastside with varied forms of recreational amenities,” said City Representative Michiel Noe of District 5.

The first phase of development of this 80 acre facility, which is located in far East El Paso near the intersection of Montwood and John Hayes, will focus on the development of a number of flat fields for various sports, one of which will be a championship style field with seating to accommodate spectators.

The complex will also include new ADA compliant restrooms, parking, and sidewalks, as well as a sheltered area with picnic tables and benches, which will allow food trucks to serve visitors and spectators during competitions or events.  As part of the project a new storage and maintenance will be constructed, and a new hike and bike trail will constructed along the entire perimeter of the complex.

Design and construction of the first phase of the $10,000,000 Eastside Sports Complex is funded by the 2012 Quality of Life Bonds. The remaining phases of the complex will be developed at a future date if funding becomes available.

Development of the entire park will be conducted in phases, according to the Master Plan which was approved by City Council in June of 2015 in order to ensure that the park is developed in an orderly, efficient, and cost-effective manner.

The second phase of design will include the athletic fields and associated infrastructure for the park, and both phase one and two are funded by the 2012 Quality of Life Bonds.  The third phase of design includes the long-term vision for the park’s future, and would occur once resources are available.
