This project consisted of a 35,000 s.f. recreation center with four pools and a 25 ft. high flume slide. This $14.1-million facility completely replaces the existing recreation center and city pool. The indoor facility has two gymnasiums, a fitness center and meeting rooms. The aquatic center includes a kiddie pool, a lap pool, a diving pool and a plunge pool with a water slide and space to play volleyball or basketball in the water. The diving pool is used by high school diving teams, lifeguards in training and water polo players who need deeper water for their sport. The full-sized plunge pool provides space for teens to enjoy the water without crowding out young children or adults swimming laps.
