The newly renovated Ziegler Park pool was designed with YOU in mind. This neighborhood swimming pool will be focused on serving the local community – children and adults alike. Join us at the pool for fun and excitement the whole family will enjoy!
According to medical research, water is the ideal medium for body rehabilitation and exercise and plays an important role in helping a child gauge his or her body boundaries. Water can improve posture, balance and coordination while soothing, calming and providing the necessary sensory input we all crave. We've done our research, and we've designed a pool that caters to all types of swimming capabilities, levels and activities including all forms of recreational and competitive swimming events.
Located in the northwestern most corner of the park, the pool is a single connected entity that features three distinct areas:
- A zero-depth entry shallow area at the eastern end
- A central section (the largest of the three) featuring five regulation 25-meter lanes
- A deep end including a one-meter diving board, and a climbing wall that arcs out slightly over the water
Along the western side of the shallow pool is an accessible ramp with handrails that leads swimmers into the pool – ramp slope and length were carefully considered to provide full and easy accessibility, eliminating the need for a mechanical deck-mounted lift.
In addition, a fully accessible Pool Service building will provide restrooms, showers, storage lockers, first aid and concessions.
While the pool will be utilized for general open swimming, plans also call for swimming lessons and a neighborhood swim team.
