Beachwood Family Aquatic Center

Beachwood, OH

In July 2003, the City of Beachwood, Ohio, dedicated its new state-of-the-art Family Aquatic Center. This dedication was the culmination of one year of intense design and construction operations with the single goal of creating the most exciting, entertaining, multi-purpose aquatic experience the city could provide its residents.

The limited schedule resulted from the realization that the city’s former 33-year-old pool was not in structural condition to re-open after the close of the 2002 summer season, and that only by executing design, demolition and new construction in the course of one swim season, could a new aquatic complex be open to the public in 2003.

Fortunately, an audit of Beachwood’s recreation and park facilities had recently been completed by Schmidt Copeland Parks Stevens and Counsilman-Hunsaker. The decisions made during that audit jump-started the design process.

The Beachwood Family Aquatic Center showcases the latest in multi-general leisure pool design including:

  • 13,238 sq. ft. Leisure Pool
  • Eight 25-meter lap lanes
  • ADA-accessible zero-depth entry
  • 1-meter and 3-meter diving boards
  • Water play features
  • Current channel
  • Five different waterslides totaling 483 linear feet
  • Vortex
  • Hydrotherapy bubble benches
  • 1,280 sq. ft. separate toddler pool
  • 1,962 sq. ft. sprayground
