Santa Clara International Swim Center
ELS has been working with the City and local user groups for over two years on the design for the new Santa Clara International Swim Center and Community Recreation Center (ISC/CRC). The facility will offer a full range of community and recreational spaces, including a theatre for performing arts, indoor gymnasium and exercise studios, fitness course, early childhood enrichment and afterschool programs, special event and community spaces. The ISC/CRC, including the addition of the International Swimming Hall of Fame, will bring together children, families, seniors, community groups and athletes to reinforce Central Park as a hub for multi-generational community recreation. Our vision strengthens and solidifies Santa Clara ISC’s long-standing tradition as a world-class aquatics and training venue for Olympic and college-level athletes. This LEED Platinum, net zero energy ready design will feature a 50-meter competition pool, an aquatics arena for diving and synchronized swimming, a 50-meter training/recreational pool, and a fun-water pool.
