Beast Urban Park, Phase 1
Features & Highlights
- 92-acre park that serves as recreational and cultural center
- Olympic-size, competition-ready pool and diving well with spectator seating for 800 people
Phase 1 of the Beast Urban Park is a recreational and cultural hub, which serves as a gathering place for families and people of all ages and interests. Phase I included a three-part facility with a state-of-the-art natatorium, community center and waterpark. The natatorium houses a 50-meter competition-ready pool with all the required amenities to host regional meets, including seating for up to 800 spectators and pool deck space for 400 competitors.
Much of the buzz surrounding this project came from its sheer scope and the number of amenities offered to the public. The three-part complex also includes a multi-generational community center with a gymnasium and multipurpose classrooms and an outdoor neighborhood waterpark with waterslides, cabana-style shade areas, a lazy river, a water play lot, a climbing wall pool, and El Paso’s first wave simulator. All of these facilities are surrounded by a landscaped walking path and public art.
Public parks play a huge role in shaping the social fabric of a community. Beast Urban Park is a case in point, and Sundt is proud to partner with the City of El Paso to create a public space that enhances residents’ quality of life.
