Upper St. Clair Township


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.

Facility Features

Virtual tour of the Community & Recreation Center
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.
