Aberdeen Aquatic Center
Year in Showcase: 2008
The Aberdeen Aquatic Center replaced two aging
pools in this South Dakota town that were
suffering from numerous structural and mechanical
problems. The result is a facility that includes a leisure
pool with water slides and several interactive play
features, a lazy river that can be accessed from both
the leisure pool and the plunge pool, body and innertube
flume slides, and a competitive pool that can
accommodate swim meets.
The site is enhanced by
decks with chaise lounges,
shade structures, sun-andturf
spaces, sand-play areas,
a shelter that can be reserved
and rented for private
environments and the use of
primary colors throughout.
The Aberdeen Aquatic
competitive and leisure
components in one facility,
linked by strategic and
effective landscaping that
gives each segment of the
facility its own character
