EL PASO - The City Council approved a master plan for the 92-acre Eastside Regional Park, the first major step toward the development of a $48 million park that officials said will feature special amenities.

Representatives of Halff and Associates, the Richardson, Texas, firm the city paid $690,000 to come up with the master plan, unveiled the final plan during its presentation of the project.

As envisioned in the master plan, the park will incorporate a ranch theme, as well as public art spread out across the site.

The first phase will include the design of services and amenities, such as an indoor 50-meter competitive swimming pool, a recreational swimming pool, a splash pad, a lazy river, a rock-climbing wall, a recreational center, a parking lot, landscaping and development of surrounding streets.

The second phase will include the design of sports fields and related infrastructure.

The third phase of design involves the long-term vision for the park's future, and will occur over time as funding becomes available.

Construction of the first phase is expected to begin during third quarter 2016. Design and construction of the second phase is likely to be by the end of 2021.
