East Boulder Recreation Center

-A A +A
1992, Barker, Rinker, Seacat and Partners. 5660 Sioux Drive (off 55th St. between Baseline Dr. and S. Boulder Rd.)

Set in an expanse of open fields, this barnlike, Post-modern complex has a central octagonal superstructure with clerestory windows and a cupola over the aquatic center. Glass lobby walls allow visual access to the center, which has a mushroom-shaped waterfall in the children's pool, a serpentine water slide, jacuzzis, sauna, and sun deck. Wings extending from the central “water world” contain a rock climbing wall, a dance studio, craft rooms, a senior wing, and a commons.
