Rhodes Jordan Aquatic Center

Lawrenceville, GA

Built in 2002, the $1.5 million Rhodes Jordan Aquatic Center is located inside the 124-acre Rhodes Jordan Park in historic downtown Lawrenceville, Georgia.

Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained by Gwinnett County to design this new 8,000 sq. ft. outdoor family-friendly leisure park that includes:

  • Participatory play features
  • Climbable frog
  • Human-sized lily pad walk
  • 21 ft. waterslide
  • Sunshades
  • Fitness lap lanes
  • ADA-accessible zero-depth entry ramp
  • Current channel
  • Water vortex

In this one facility, the City of Lawrenceville was able to meet the aquatic needs of people of all ages, swimming abilities, and interests.

In 2018, Counsilman-Hunsaker was hired for the replacement of the filter system and associated piping.
