Rainier Beach, City ofRainier Beach, WA
The City of Seattle wanted the aquatic facility at the Rainier Beach Community Center to be designed to meet the needs of the Rainier Beach community for the next 50+ years.
It was important to the city and the community to provide maximum flexibility for programming, which would be the key to maximum utilization. The Updated Business Plan provided research to assist the city in making an educated decision on how best to proceed with the construction and operation of the indoor aquatic center. With this information at their fingertips, the city decided to proceed with the design of a new aquatic center.
The $12 million Rainier Beach Aquatic Center, currently in design, will feature a six lane indoor lap pool, a free-form recreation pool, and a spa pool. The project is slated for completion in 2012.
