The latest design of our new aquatics facility is incredibly family-friendly, universally accessible and welcoming for people of all abilities and interests. 

The two pool design allows for a zero-depth entry recreational pool with attached walking lanes for pool fitness, a fun slide, and varying depths for a pool experience for all ages and abilities.

Next to the recreational pool will be an 8-lane lap pool for our pool league, lap swimmers, divers, swim lessons and more. 

The plan includes a large splash pad, ample deck space, seating, and shade opportunities.

The bathhouse will also get accessibility, restroom and changing room updates.

I’m grateful to all the dedicated groups and individuals who have been working for so long to design the Gath Pools & splash pad with a special thank you to Commissioner Nicole Banks & the Parks, Recreation and Culture team and Commissioner Josh Morse & the Public Buildings team.
