Kluber Architects + Engineers partnered with TMP Architecture to provide schematic designs for the Batavia Park District’s proposed redevelopment of the Harold Hall Quarry Beach into a community recreation center. The purpose of the redevelopment was to provide year-round amenities and fix the existing outdoor pool, while maintaining the character of the historic site.

The proposed designs included an indoor pool, weight fitness area and a three-court gymnasium for multiple activities ranging from low-impact fitness classes for seniors to badminton and basketball. Other proposed amenities included an elevated jogging track, meeting rooms, baby-sitting area, senior activities spaces and a food concession area. A lobby space with generous views of the outdoors was designed as a welcoming point and meeting place for patrons.

Care was taken to preserve the City of Batavia’s history in limestone quarrying and the space’s more recent use as a beach and water park. The original stone diving platform was incorporated into the new design as an open stairway to the second floor of the facility.
