MCCM Architects, in association with Clark Condon Associates, was responsible for the architectural elements of this extensive renovation project located in a predominately Hispanic community north of Houston’s central business district. The design concept for the concession facility, swim facility and shelters was derived from simples shapes and bold colors reminiscent of contemporary Hispanic architecture. Masonry and stucco painted with high-build acrylic coatings were chosen because of their durability, color and ability to be easily repaired and refinished in the event of vandalism. The concession building has top-hinged panels that open up when in use to provide sun and rain protection to the concession openings. The swim facility includes restrooms for men and women, life guard office, control station, pool equipment rooms, storage for pool accessories, a 25 meter competition pool with separate area for a water slide, 12-inch deep toddler pool with water sprays, and shade structures. A large covered “porch” on the entrance side of the swim facility, outside the pool enclosure, provides protection from sun and rain for swimmers and non-swimmers and opens onto a paved sculpture court which, together with the porch, can be used for multiple non-swimming functions in the park. The swim facility restrooms are designed to be accessible from outside the pool enclosure when the pool is closed.
