Making a splash.
A sleek aquatics center combines community and competition.
Designing an iconic civic institution.
Located on a public beach and replacing an aging facility, the Belmont Beach and Aquatic Center establishes a new focal point for the Long Beach aquatic competition community. Supporting therapeutic and recreational activities as well as swimming, diving and water polo competitions, the Center has become an iconic civic institution for the region. Facilities include two 50-meter competition pools, recreational and teaching pools, therapeutic whirlpools, diving platforms, springboards and deep water wells, spectator seating and support spaces. Outdoors, a park, walk-up restaurant and landscaped plazas issue an open invitation to beachgoers and community members, and take full advantage of the Center’s Southern California setting.
