The San Leandro HS Pool project included the demolition of the existing pool and facilities. It was replaced with a new aquatics center which includes a 25-meter long by 25-yard wide competition pool, pool deck, fencing, pool house with pool equipment storage, office, snack bar concessions, ticketing, scoreboard, timing system/PA, bleachers and restrooms with showers.
The scope of work for this project included a 35-meter x 25-yard swimming pool, 7,500 sf shower, locker, concession / mechanical building, and 350-seat covered bleachers.
This project serves as a much needed community recreation aquatic facility and also provides a competitive pool for the adjacent high school, Patriot High School.
The pool components have been positioned to allow for concurrent usage while providing clear separation for diverse user groups. The competitive pool area consists of a 25-yard by 35-meter pool which will provide for all high school swimming and diving competitions as well as floating goal water polo. The recreational pool area has been designed to maximize potential for revenue. The various pool components include a flow-rider, lazy-river, spray-splash area and three (3) water slides with receiving pools. In addition, group picnic structures, terraced and sloped lawn seating/lounging areas have also been provided to enhance the overall water park experience.
The Santa Clarita Aquatic Center opened in October 2003, quickly becoming a popular source of aquatic recreation for both organized aquatic events and fun water play for community participants of all ages. The City of Santa Clarita and WLC Architects gathered public input on the amenities to be included in the facility by conducting several community participation workshops.
The aquatic center provides a diverse pool program by defining and separating different use areas with topography and landscaping. The Aquatic Center offers three pools, consisting of a 50 meter competition pool with a competition timing system, a 25 meter dive pool, and a recreational/activity pool, complete with water play equipment, a 160 foot water slide, concession building, locker/changing rooms, and lighted, landscaped grounds.
