MAPS3 Senior Health & Wellness Center #2 – Pete White Health & Wellness

Oklahoma City, OK

The Pete White Health & Wellness Center is the second of four Senior Health & Wellness Centers funded by the third iteration of the MAPS initiatives promoting healthy, active lifestyles, social interaction and overall quality of life for Oklahoma City residents 50 years and older. To accomplish these objectives, the 39,000 sq. ft. facility includes a mix of fitness facilities, a lap pool, casual social spaces, and multipurpose rooms to support a wide variety of group activities, educational programs, and other events.

Aquatics is a critical component of the overall program, and as such, Counsilman-Hunsaker was engaged to provide guidance and insight into how best to create an efficient multi-purpose body of water that would allow for a multitude of aquatic health and wellness activities to take place.

Based on the program confirmation feedback, an efficient layout of 2,300 sq. ft. of water surface area was developed to provide four 25-yard fitness lap lanes with depths from 3 ft. 6 in. to 4 ft. 9 in. In addition to fitness lap swimming, aquatic aerobics, water walking, and other related wellness activities, the pool also provides recreational elements such as water volleyball, water basketball, and underwater bench seating with hydro jets.  Two different types of ADA-compliant entries and exits are provided in the pool for maximum versatility, including a ramp entry and an ADA-compliant pool lift.  The pool is equipped with state-of-the-art continuous perimeter overflow in a deck-level gutter configuration and utilizes both on-site saline generation and medium pressure ultra-violet light to maintain water quality and reduce the effects of chloramines within the natatorium space.  LED underwater lighting is provided in the pool for increased visibility and to contribute to the aesthetic of the space.

MAPS3 is a $777 million, debt-free capital improvement program to improve the quality of life in Oklahoma City.
