Counsilman Hunsaker in association with Elbasani & Logan Architects designed a community center that includes four outdoor swimming pools.  The 50-meter, 18-lane lap pool is the largest in Santa Cruz County, holding nearly 600k gallons of water.

The pool is used for lap swimming, water polo and water aerobics; has a 43k gallon warm water pool is used for therapy and recreational swimming, s a zero depth entry ramp for easy wheel chair access.

The splash-down pool is used to catch patrons at the bottom of the two-story cork screw slide.  The fourth pool is the wading pool, with its mushroom fountain and one foot depth it is perfect for tots.
