Rapid City, SD

The City of Rapid City, South Dakota, retained the team of Fennel Design and Counsilman-Hunsaker to assess their existing aquatic facility at Horace Mann Park and to provide options for renovation or replacement of the existing 50-meter pool which had reached physical and functional obsolescence. The study also provided options for the development of an outdoor pool at Roosevelt Park. The team developed concepts and provided a revenue and expense analysis, construction costs, project costs, attendance, and operating revenue to give a complete picture of what each facility would cost to build and operate.

Aquatic Design & Engineering

Based on the results of the study, the city once again retained the team of Fennel Design and Counsilman-Hunsaker to replace the 50-meter pool at Horace Mann Park with a new outdoor aquatic center featuring a lap pool, recreation pool, and waterslide tower. In addition to the Horace Mann Park pool replacement, a new ten lane 50-meter outdoor pool was constructed next to the Rapid City Swim Center to be utilized to host major swim meets and community recreational swimming.
