Gypsum Recreation Center

Feasibility Study + Design

The town of Gypsum, located on the western end of Eagle County in ski country, wanted to provide a multigenerational facility to serve the needs of the town and surrounding communities. Through a feasibility study, Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture and GreenPlay, LLC were able to help define these needs. The town’s dream came true through a successful bond election in November 2004.

The 59,000-s.f. center includes a multi-activity (MAC) gymnasium, gymnastics center, climbing and bouldering walls, leisure pool with interactive play area and lazy river, fitness areas, aerobics/dance studio, jog/walk track, multipurpose/senior activities rooms, game room, babysitting and indoor play area, and lobby with café and lounge.

The new recreation center joins a developing campus of town buildings and recreation facilities that express an exciting vision for the town of Gypsum.
