Flagstaff Aquaplex

Project Type:
Community Recreation
Flagstaff, Arizona

Flagstaff, Arizona is a community rich with cultural diversity, beauty and history. The city government is devoted to enhancing the quality of life of its citizens and visitors. The community had been in need of an indoor recreation center, especially during the cooler months. Located in a mountainous area on the edge of town, the community center was designed to meet the recreation needs of the community while also embracing the natural landscape of the site.

The facility features an aquatics area, designed by Water Technology, Inc. (WTI), which contains a large leisure pool with various interactive water features, a lazy river, two body slides and a whirlpool. The design also includes an area for a future spray pad.

Several energy saving features were implemented, including the use of solar heat for heating the leisure pool and installation of media filters for pool water. The design of the indoor/outdoor waterslides is also a cost saving measure, with less space to build and heat.

In addition to the aquatics, the facility offers a gymnasium, multi-purpose rooms, child care, large gallery area, climbing wall, elevated track, and fitness area.
