As part of the City’s Prop K program, an antiquated bathhouse and swimming pool in Lincoln Heights (an inner city neighborhood of Los Angeles) is planned for replacement, delivering a new modern facility for community recreation and interaction. The new Aquatic Center will include a new bathhouse building, upgraded lap pool, splash pad, and landscaped garden areas. A modern sloping metal canopy will cover the new building, tying the program components into a single building entity that takes inspiration from the original Eastlake Park Conservatories, which were built in the 1920’s and functioned as nurseries for the City before their conversion/alteration in 1952 to the existing recreation center.
With a simple, modern design that incorporates attractive, durable and maintenance free materials, the new aquatic facility is planned to revitalize a blighted, but much needed, recreational community facility that will pay homage to an important historic past.
