Clayton County Aquatic Center

Clayton County, GA

The Clayton County Commission and County School System sought to create a state-of-the-art swimming facility for children and their families in Clayton County, Georgia. Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained as the lead aquatic designer for the Steve Lundquist Aquatic Center, named after the gold medalist in the 1984 Olympics.

The Steve Lundquist natatorium offers a plethora of swimming and fitness classes. Both water exercise and water therapy programs have grown substantially over the years due to aquatic fitness being less strenuous than land fitness. The sustained popularity of teaching the community to swim has led to significant numbers of swim team and masters swimmers nationwide.

The natatorium is comprised of:

  • 50-meter by 25-yard competition pool with three¬†one-meter diving boards
  • Moveable bulkhead, which allows for up to 18 swimming lanes or three simultaneous waterpolo games.
  • Separate 25-yard warm-up pool with four lap lanes features a poolside basketball hoop and an ADA-accessible stair entry.
