Yakima Valley Aquatic Center

Project: Yakima Valley Aquatic Center
Space: Indoor Aquatic Center
Location: Yakima Valley, USA

Yakima Valley is a popular tourist destination for wine enthusiasts, the area also offers a variety of family-friendly attractions, including museums, performance venues and scenic outdoor trails. With contributions from over 400 community donors, the city of Yakima, and its local YMCA and Rotary Clubs, plans were initiated to construct a brand new, $21 million dollar, state-of-the-art Aquatics Center. The main goal of the project was to design a facility that promoted a healthy lifestyle through strong social engagement and physical activity. 

For this project, our internal team of aquatic play experts worked in collaboration with Water Technology Inc. (WTI) to develop an innovative and nature-inspired aquatic play adventure utilizing features from the Grasslands product collection.
