Catskill Recreation Center

Arkville, NY








19,400 SF

The Catskill Recreational Center is the vision of the Gould family and their desire to give back to a community that has supported them for 5 generations. The 19,400 SF family-focused recreational center includes a competitive-size swimming pool, locker room, community meeting spaces, fitness center, and lounge. The facility features a number of sustainable elements including geothermal, HVAC, and pool heating systems, solar domestic water heating, photovoltaic electric generation, energy recovery ventilation, and LED lighting. Key elements designed by IPD include HVAC, plumbing, electric, and telecommunications system, as well as sprinkler and fire protection.


In addition to the sustainable technologies used in this project, our design team incorporated a number of energy-saving materials including 4-inch thick foam insulated roof panels and 3-inch thick foam insulated wall panels. The R-value of the polyurethane core used in these panels provides the highest insulating value per inch thickness of any building material available today.


This high-efficiency center accommodates two swimming pools, office, locker rooms, a class/playroom, and a 3,000 SF fitness area. The pool area includes a 6-lane lap pool and a zero-entry depth recreational pool. The facility has been designed for expandability should the need for additional space or additional complementary facilities arise.
