The City of Evansville realized a great need in the community for more swimming programs. The city’s existing Lloyd Pool was no longer in a state to support quality competitive and recreational swim programming.
The new aquatic center was funded by title sponsor Deaconess Health System and a mix of public and private funds, and will be managed by the YMCA. The center is divided into two separate areas — competitive and recreational — each with its own dedicated locker rooms.
The competition pool is a stretch 50-meter pool where diving and swimming can occur simultaneously, and both collegiate and high school swim meets can be accommodated. There is also a mezzanine large enough to hold 960 people, which provides views of the entire area. The 4,000-square-foot leisure pool has a zero-depth entry area and includes play features, basketball goals, and space for swim lessons. A splash park is located outside, adjacent to this space.
