The Rengstorff Park Aquatics Center is located on the northeast side of Rengstorff Park, accessible from Crisanto Avenue. The Aquatics Center was opened in 1959 and is one of two aquatics facilities operated by the City of Mountain View. The preliminary program for the replacement facility includes a new building, new wading and swimming pools, locker and shower facilities, and multi-purpose space that can be used for a variety of different purposes.
The current configuration of the building, pool, and supporting elements are not flexible and efficient enough to meet the needs of a modern municipal aquatics program. Many elements of the current building have reached their useful lifespan and require frequent maintenance or near term replacement. To view project Site Plan, click on image to the right.
The overarching goal is to design a community-based aquatics center that provides a variety of features which meets the needs of residents of all ages in an all-inclusive facility. The new facility should provide a wide range of opportunities for the public to enjoy aquatics programs using equipment, and technology to ensure a clean environment with a focus on safety awareness at all times.
On January 16, 2020, City staff presented three scope options to the Parks and Recreation Commission (PRC) comprising of varying sizes of lap pools and recreational elements. After staffs' presentation and hearing comments from the public, the PRC voted to recommend that City Council adopt "Option 2", a 10 lane - 25 yard x 8 lane - 25 meter pool with a larger recreational/leisure pool, as the preferred scope. Subsequently, at a City Council study session on February 25, 2020, Council directed staff to begin the conceptual design phase using "Option 2" as the scope. Staff returned to the PRC on May 27, 2020, in which the Commission moved forward a recommendation to Council to proceed with the schematic design of "Option A".
Staff is seeking approval from City Council for the conceptual design of the Rengstorff Park Aquatics Center Replacement Project (project 18-38) as part of the Consent Calendar on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. (or as soon as the item can be heard).The meeting will be broadcast live at MountainView.Legistar.com, on YouTube at MountainView.gov/YouTube, and on Comcast Channel 26. Members of the public wishing to provide comments to the City Council may send an email to City.Council@MountainView.gov, sign up to provide comments during the video conference meeting at MountainView.gov/cc_speakers beginning on Thursday, June 25, 2020, or mail comments to City Clerk, p.o. box 7540, Mountain View, CA 94039-7540.
