Selah Aquatic Center

Project Type:
Community Recreation
Selah, Washington

The Selah Aquatic Center was made possible through the support of voters in the area who approved a $6.2 Million bond to replace the existing 70-year-old pool with a more robust aquatic complex. Alongside the project team, Water Technology, Inc. (WTI) worked with city planners to reduce costs of the initially envisioned three-pool complex to a simpler single-pool design that reduced construction costs while maintaining play value and space for programming options.

Though there is only one body of water at the Selah Aquatic Center, it packs a lot of action with amenities and features for everyone. Families with toddlers will appreciate the zero-depth entry tot section of 6,978 leisure pool complete with geysers and floral themed spray features. One of the most multi-generational amenities is the current channel, across from the tot area, with spray features and space for a float or some resistance walking. Near the current channel is a flat 4’ deep exercise space designed for water aerobics and active adult programming. Adjoining the exercise space is the 8-lane lap area, for lap swimmers and the Selah Dolphins Swim Team, which plans to host their practices and swim meets here.

The new Selah Aquatic Center will serve as a community activity hub for years to come as family members of all ages benefit from a healthier lifestyle from community aquatics.
