Fircrest Community Center and Pool

Fircrest, WA


In 2016, ARC Architects and Counsilman-Hunsaker were selected by the City of Fircrest to investigate design options for improving the Fircrest Community Center and Community Pool. The study provided guidance and strategies for future design including technical information and options. Four strategies were presented, providing cost estimates in addition to pros and cons for each scenario. Each strategy enhanced programming and use, integrated on-going use with proposed improvements, and addressed current code requirements.

Pleased with the results from the study and with the voter’s approval of a $13.5 million parks bond measure, the city retained ARC Architects and Counsilman-Hunsaker to design a new community center with an outdoor pool. Five public meetings were held throughout the concept planning and design phases. The design team worked with a Steering Committee, Parks Department, and City Council to include ideas and address project concerns
