ABOUT

VALLEY CENTER REC 


The City of Valley Center has worked with our hired design consultant to develop the plans for the renovation of Lions Park Aquatic Center and the new Valley Center Recreation/Aquatic Center. As the design developed, Valley Center Rec received design input from through a community wide survey. Nearly 100 survey responses were received. This was used to assist in creating a space that could be best used by all members of the community. Schaefer Architecture reviewed the 2020 Swimming Pool and Recreation Survey results, developed an updated program of spaces, established the square footage needed, and created a masterplan vision. The new recreation/Aquatic Center is planned to be just north of the middle school, allowing some shared use of the facility by the school district’s swim team. The goal is to commence construction of Phase 1 for the Recreation/Aquatic Center in late spring of 2023. Within this document you will find the site plan, floor layout, and both exterior and interior renderings of the proposed recreation and aquatic facility.
