Gardner Aquatic Center & Waterpark

Gardner, Kansas

About The Aquatic Facility Design

Highly successful municipal aquatic facility
Gardner Aquatic Center

Gardner, Kansas is like many cities within the Kansas City metro area. Growth has been exponential over the past few years. Although the City had a municipal swimming pool that was constructed around 1990, explosive population growth coupled with the lack of excitement at the existing pool prompted the City to construct a new cutting edge recreational facility.

Aquatic Design Consultants, Inc. was hired to plan, design and oversee construction of this landmark project. The design included minor renovation to the existing swimming pool facility with new construction of a municipal water park adjacent and integral to the existing facility. The existing bathhouse structure was renovated and a new admissions, office, and concessions building was constructed.
