Pelican Bay Aquatic CenterEdmond, OK
The City of Edmond selected Counsilman-Hunsaker to provide a variety of aquatic services, including a Facility Audit of the 40-year-old pool for the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
The report suggested the most economical solution was to construct a new pool rather than upgrade the existing facility.
Counsilman-Hunsaker then developed a Feasibility Study to analyze the operational and economic impact that would result in the creation of a new aquatic center. The city approved the construction of a new pool and commissioned Counsilman-Hunsaker in association with Allen Brown Architects to design the new Pelican Bay Aquatic Center.
The 12,500 sq. ft. pool is designed as one body of water with a variety of fitness and leisure attractions including:
- 25-yard lap pool with six lanes
- One-meter diving board
- Open flume waterslide
- Closed tube waterslide
- Zero-depth entry
- Interactive water play features such as automated sprays and pulley-activated spray pipes
- Current channel
- Separate 1,256 sq. ft. sprayground
