Summer Maintenance and Area Closures at the Cal Poly Recreation Center

By: Jenna Brown on Jun 15, 2018 in ASI Recreational Sports

ASI takes great pride in maintaining the Cal Poly Recreation Center and ensuring it remains a top-tier facility for participants. For this reason, deep cleaning and maintenance will be performed in multiple facility areas throughout the summer. The impacted areas and their closure dates are as follows:

Turnstile Renovation Project

After 6.5 years and over six million entries, the gate entrances to the Recreation Center are getting an update. To provide more efficient access for members and guests of the Recreation Center, six new swing-gate turnstiles are being installed. This new gate style utilizes sensors that will allow for no-touch entry and provide flexibility with multi-directional capabilities that can be adjusted for entry or exiting during heavy use periods. Once installed, members will continue to use the current Handkey system to access the facility, but the increased number of turnstiles and greater functional abilities will support the high number of entries and provide faster entry per person.

The eight-week project will last from June 17 to Aug. 24. The existing turnstiles and Membership Services desk will be relocated to the temporary entrance through the current exit doors by the Training Room. The temporary entrance will be utilized throughout the duration of the project. The facility will close at noon on Sunday, June 17 to relocate the new entrance.

South and North Gyms

The South and North Gyms will be temporarily closed from June 4 to 13. LED light fixtures will be installed to improve quality and efficiency of lighting.

Pool Closures

The Rec and Leisure Pools will be closed from June 18 to 20 due to a campuswide hot water outage. This will not affect hot water in the showers. The pool deck and sand volleyball courts will remain open. The Rec Pool will remain open until 11 a.m. on Monday, June 18. The Anderson Aquatic Center located behind Mott Gym will be open for member use on Monday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Tuesday and Wednesday from 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Track Exercise Room Flooring

The Track Exercise Room will be closed from June 18 to Aug. 31 to install new flooring. Half of the indoor track will also be inaccessible during this time.

All-Gender Restroom Closure

The all-gender restrooms near the locker rooms will be closed from June 25 to 29. The all-gender restroom on the pool deck will remain open, and there will be two single stall showers available through the duration of the project. 

ASI thanks you for your patience as necessary maintenance is performed to update the facility. Visit the Recreation Center Facebook and Recreation Center Instagram for updates and more information.
