USAquatics, Inc. worked directly the Architect to replace the aging 50M outdoor pool at Thompson Park. The new design allows for 50M x 8 – lane use, incorporates a waterslide, diving board and an aquatic climbing wall. Additional cross pool lanes were added for increased programming for fitness and practice. A 3 – season splash park was also included as part of the master design.
The design called for the existing bathhouse to be replaced with a new – year round building that includes: new locker rooms, family change areas, and second level Park District offices with overlooking views for monitoring park areas. The green-friendly design created a new mechanical room near the deep end of the pool – minimizing excavation and demolition. Plans and specs were completed and the project was put out for public bid.
