Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), along with Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture (BRS) and the city of Woodland Park, recently celebrated the grand opening of a 24,530-sq-ft indoor aquatic-only center.
The center includes a zero-entry leisure pool, play features, a lazy river, a six-lane competitive lap pool with a diving board, and a front entry that includes a party room, child-care area and administrative space.
In attendance at the event were members of the project team, including those from BRS, the city of Woodland Park and AP, along with Woodland Park Mayor Neil Levy.
The aquatics center is a family-oriented natatorium that provides amenities for fun as well as fitness. Leisure-pool water depths vary from beach-like zero-depth entries to 4 ft, 6 in. at the deepest.
Play features are provided for a variety of ages. They include geysers, interactive spray features, a lazy river and a waterslide that goes outside the building before returning inside. The lazy river also doubles as a resistance channel for exercise, therapy and rehabilitation. A co e, six-lane lap pool is adjacent to the leisure pool and has a 4-ft to 12-ft depth and a one-meter diving board.
“We’re incredibly excited to see the ways that this aquatic center brings the community together,” said AP project manager Ian Warner. “The turnout for the grand opening was amazing, and it is great to be part of the team delivering a project that the community gets excited about. This is their building and their asset, and it just came alive today.”
Measures are in place to include a future outdoor spa and an indoor-outdoor slide. Future expansions will include additional administrative space, purpose-built child-watch, racquetball and fitness, group exercise, a jog-walk track and a gymnasium.
