Montrose Community Recreation Center & Field House
A future-proof facility for the community.
The final design is equally divided between the Aquatics, Sports and Fitness portions of the building, featuring a 5,500-s.f. leisure pool, a 10-lane, 25 yard x 8-lane, 25-meter competitive pool, three gymnasiums, large family game area, children’s indoor play area, a second level fitness area, track and support spaces. The track has three options for fitness users including a flat section surrounding the upper fitness, a hill track section surrounding the three gyms and a stair track section which utilizes the existing building stairs to create a two level track around the fitness area on the second level and the gyms on the lower level. The competitive pool will be the largest public pool on the western slope and is designed to include both highly competitive and recreational uses to provide swimming for all the citizens of the district. In addition to the new facility, the former natatorium was renovated into a field house with turf fields to support indoor sports programs throughout the year.
