Beacon, Pool anchor Elkhart River District
Collaboration will create health, jobs and community connections

Construction of the $59 million Elkhart Health & AquaticsSM is expected to be completed in July, when Beacon Health & Fitness and the pool will open inside a new complex that anchors the Elkhart River District.

The two story, 170,000-square-foot facility, which will be operated by Beacon Health System, will feature a 66 x 25-meter competition pool and diving well, Beacon Health & Fitness, and other health, fitness and common spaces.

Beacon Health & Fitness will offer cardiovascular equipment, strength training, squash and racquetball courts, fitness studios for yoga, Pilates, TRX training and aerobics, therapy and lap pools, suspended running track, gymnasium and outdoor fitness areas. Similar to the South Bend and Granger locations, this location will bring Elkhart a unique medical fitness model that includes onsite physical therapy, sports medicine and other services.

The pool will be Olympic-size with diving well that contains more than 1 million gallons of water, 3- and 5-meter diving platforms, and movable bulkheads for long or short course events. The natatorium will provide seating for 1,200 spectators. The entire complex has been uniquely designed to not only draw athletes and their families for training and competitions, but also community residents across the region.

“By pairing world class fitness and aquatics facilities with clinical services, we will enhance the quality of life for those in the Greater Elkhart area,” said Alan Loyd, Beacon Health & Fitness executive director. “We’re thrilled to watch the complex take shape after years of collaboration. It will be a source of pride for the region.”

Children and families will be able to use Elkhart Health & Aquatics for open and recreational swimming, basketball and other sports, as well as community programs and classes. Located on East Jackson Boulevard near the St. Joseph and Elkhart rivers, the complex will generate as many as 100 part-time and several full-time positions.

Memberships for Beacon Health & Fitness and the pool are now available or by stopping by the trailer in front of Elkhart Health & Aquatics. Call 574.389.5580 for more information. The project is a collaboration of Beacon Health System, Elkhart Community Schools and the Community Foundation of Elkhart County, with additional contributions from the City of Elkhart, the Regional Cities Initiative and the generosity of the local community.
