Regent Park Aquatic Centre, Toronto, ON, Canada By MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects-2012!


The Regent Park Aquatic Centre is the key civic amenity centred on the eastern flank of the new central
park development as the heart of the revitalization. It is a multi-purpose swimming pool facility that includes
a 25m, 6-lane pool, leisure pool, tot pool, hot tub, slide, tarzan-rope, and diving board. Replacing an existing
outdoor pool, the project was mandated to capture a feeling of transparency and connection to the outdoors.
The interior design is clean and simple in its’ resolution, open and inviting, and active and fun in use. The facility
also has two double sliding glass doors off the main pool hall for sunbathing access to the park-side terrace.The adoption of this new progressive feature along with the universal change rooms, the combination of fitness, leisure, and therapeutic aquatic uses, and the open and inviting design has greatly increased interest in the City’s aquatic venues.
