About The Aquatic Facility Design

Outdoor Dual-Pool Aquatic Park
Colby Aquatic Park

Known as the “Oasis on the Plains”, Colby, Kansas is a place where family recreation is a top priority. Even though their outdoor swimming pool was built in the 1940s, every year it hosted many residents for swimming events of all kinds.

Aquatic Design Consultants, Inc. was commissioned to help the city plan, fund, design, and construct a treasured replacement that would continue the strong tradition of summertime swimming in Colby. After a new sales tax was approved by resident’s, the new aquatic park was constructed and opened to rave reviews. Because of its vast array of modern features, the new facility has succeeded in bringing in not only Colby residents, but people from the entire region.
