Flick Pool Renovation

Glenview, IL 2007

Project Description

This significant renovation includes three new facilities — a 6,000- square-foot bathhouse/administration building, a 1,400-square-foot concessions building and a 2,000-square-foot mechanical building — as well as additional parking. Five new pools — a 9,000-square-foot zero-depth-entry activity pool, a 2,300-square-foot splash pool, a 2,000-square-foot ?kiddie? pool, a 4,500-square-foot lap pool and a 1,575-square-foot deep hopper — can accommodate a total of 1,500 bathers. Additional amenities include two drop slides, two body-flume slides, a 3-meter diving board, a 1-meter diving board and various water-play features such as a computer-controlled water cannon game.

New landscaped greenspaces, shade structures and a rental lawn were added, as well, while the introduction of flora creates a noise buffer for the benefit of nearby residents.
