Project Description 

The completed facility includes a new six-lane lap pool with an adjacent aqua-exercise pool, a wave pool with a lazy river and bubble pit, an activity pool with zero-depth entry, play structure, geysers, and sprays, a water slide, and a 20-person therapeutic hydro-jet spa. The universal locker room expansion better serves families and individuals with special needs, increasing accessibility for all.

The recreation center will remained open to the public throughout construction. To ensure guest and staff safety, and minimize impacts to daily operation, Pinkard implemented special safety and operational protocols learned from their 42 recreation centers and 60 pools constructed along the Colorado Front Range.
