Community & Recreation Center at Boyce Mayview Park
The ideal reflection of a higher quality of life, the Community & Recreation Center (C&RC), is a 90,000 sq. ft. fitness, aquatics, recreation and community center surrounded by 475 acres of the great outdoors in Boyce Mayview Park, which entices members and their families to play, relax, push limits, indulge and celebrate.
Since the Grand Opening on June 13, 2009 followed by the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on June 20, 2009, the facility has become a natural oasis and personal playground that extends fun and excitement beyond your own backyard for families in Upper St. Clair and southern Pittsburgh. If you are already living here or new to the area, the C&RC is sure to become the hub of your social interactions within our community and surrounding areas.

Architecturally the Community & Recreation Center forms a bridge between the outdoors and indoors. The exterior design was to integrate with the Boyce Mayview Park setting and appear as a park structure with natural exterior materials; brick, cultured stone, a wood like siding and generous amounts of glazing to allow views into the building during the evening. In addition this allows day time participants spectacular views of the surrounding hills and park, woods and fields during the four seasons of the year.
Well thought out "Green" design elements have been utilized throughout the facility to minimize energy usage such as thermal efficient glass, super insulated building shell, the use of natural light and high-efficiency mechanical units, to name a few. The use of high recycle requirements on specific interior finishes and the use of native plantings and low water consumption plant landscaping have also been noted as "green" design elements.
The center's first floor offers a large community gathering area, two group exercise studios, children's playroom (babysitting), two poolside party rooms in addition to a 3,600 sq. ft. community room, men's/women's locker rooms, family changing rooms and two full size gymnasiums. The large gymnasium can be subdivided and used for numerous recreation programs for all ages such as volleyball, basketball, pickleball, after school programs, boot camp, summer camps, teen events, and many others.
The Indoor Aquatics Center hosts an interactive water structure and gadgets, slides, tots area, handicap lift, four lane lap pool and large whirlpool. Especially attractive to members and guests is the zero depth entry to the pool and the indoor therapeutic resistance current channel which can be used to walk against the water's currents for low impact exercise. The resistance current channel also includes a vortex for an intense workout and underwater benches for relaxation.
The second floor contains a state of the art fitness area with Hammer Strength, Life Fitness and Expresso exercise equipment. The cardio equipment as well as the Expresso Bikes offer individual television/ multi-media screens and virtual trainers with an abundance of course and work out options. The low impact floor 1/8 mile walking/jogging track overlooks the first floor amenities as well as many outdoor view corridors.
Encompassing a total of 28,000 sq. ft. the Outdoor Aquatics Area hosts 6,000 sq. ft. of water with zero depth entry, interactive water structure and gadgets including a 60,000 gallon bucket which teeters over and splashes over the crowd, tot and teen slides, lily pads, handicap lift and three lane leisure pool with underwater benches. Surrounding the aquatics area are lounge chairs, a grassy lawn, covered pavilions where members and guests picnic, vending machines and separate outdoor men's/women's locker rooms and family changing rooms.
