Activities Recreation Center

Columbia, MO

Counsilman-Hunsaker, commissioned by the City of Columbia, Missouri, designed a state-of-the-art indoor leisure pool and warm water therapy pool to complement their existing Activities Recreation Center (ARC).

The award-winning swimming pools made quite a splash when they opened in 2003. Residents enjoy the uplifting natural light that floods the natatorium’s swimming pools, triple loop waterslide, three adjacent lap lanes, play feature, and two multipurpose wet classrooms.

The leisure pool’s innovative design made optimum use of the available space with an array of features including:

  • 6,500 sq. ft. Indoor Leisure Pool
  • 25 ft. high triple loop waterslide
  • Current channel
  • Vortex
  • ADA-accessible zero-depth entry
  • Participatory play equipment
  • Three lap lanes
  • 292 sq. ft. therapy pool
