The Borough of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, offers plenty of recreation, including a section of the Appalachian Trail. However, the existing outdoor swimming pool was facing physical and functional obsolescence due to its age and was not operating according to current health, safety, and construction codes as well as industry standards. The Chambersburg feasibility study focused on concepts of outdoor leisure pools between 10,000 and 16,000 sq. ft., including lap lanes and various fun attractions for the city to add to its recreation portfolio.
In 2015, as an update to the 2008 feasibility study, MKSD Architects and Counsilman-Hunsaker were hired by the City of Chambersburg to evaluate the conditions and provide comparison recommendations for repair, renovation, and replacement of the Memorial Park Outdoor Pool located in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.
