Project Type:
Community Recreation
Sunriver, Oregon

The Sunriver Homeowners Aquatics and Recreation Center (SHARC) offers residents, resort guests and the general public a total recreational experience. This experience includes indoor and outdoor recreation pools, an outdoor adult hot tub, an outdoor lazy river and two water slides. It also has a tot pool and sand play area, a cafe, picnic area, playground, basketball court, bocce ball court, tubing hill and warming pavilion, plus meeting rooms and an outdoor amphitheater. Private areas for owners and their guests include a fitness center, living room and an outdoor patio.

WTI teamed with Group Mackenzie to provide aquatic services for this new indoor/outdoor recreation hub. The design is based upon initial public outreach meetings with the Sunriver Homeowners Association, which included an aquatics study, master planning and sledding recommendations.
