East Bay Regional Parks District, Aquatic Center Replacement

Originally constructed in 1954, this project will result in the development of state-of-the-art aquatic facilities for the East Bay Regional Park District.

The East Bay Regional Park District is a system of beautiful parklands and trails in Alameda and Contra Costa counties to the east of San Francisco. The system comprises nearly 125,000 acres in 73 parks, including over 1,250 miles of trails. We acquire, manage, and preserve natural and cultural resources for all to enjoy now and into the future. Our parks are ideal for healthful recreation and environmental education. Activities include: hiking, biking, picnicking, horseback riding, camping, fishing, boating, golfing, and nature study.

The District proposes to renovate its existing four-lane pool (approximately 35’ wide x 75’ long) at Roberts Regional Recreation Area to make it large enough for six competition lanes and two cool down lanes, as well as improve associated support facilities and site conditions. The Project includes construction of a 5,620 SF pool with new pool deck, a 2,515 SF pool house with changing rooms, restrooms, offices and lifeguard break room, and a 1,450 SF pump house mechanical building with pump room, storage spaces, and equipment rooms.

The project also includes upgrading the existing septic system. Site improvements include retaining walls, landscaping, pool lighting, ticket kiosk, and perimeter fencing. The project will also bring accessible parking and path of travel from the parking lot to the pool facilities up to current code Work requires coordination with the City of Oakland, the Alameda County Department of Environmental Health, EBMUD, and PG&E.
