The Beast - Eastside Regional Recreation Center
The 92-acre park on the east side of El Paso is home to a Natatorium that houses a 50-Meter competition-ready indoor pool with all the required amenities, including spectator seating for 800 spectators, sufficient pool deck area for 400 competitors, trainer rooms, and a warm-up and cool-down pool. Additionally, the Eastside Regional Park-Phase One is composed of two other main structures: Outdoor Recreation Aquatic Facility & Community Center. The recreational pool (Aquatic Center) area consists of an outdoor pool with water slides/tube slides, a climbing wall, a lazy river, splash pads, and other water amenities, with family picnic areas and other shaded areas. The community center is a multi-generation center that caters to both families and seniors for recreation and indoor sports.
While Perkins + Will served as the Architect of Record, In*Situ collaborated on design throughout the project and served as the local lead during construction of this 100,674-SF project.
