In June 2014, the citizens of Wadsworth celebrated the grand opening of their new outdoor pool located north of the Wadsworth YMCA community center. The pool is a collaboration between the city of Wadsworth and the Akron Area YMCA. This facility was funded by the city and will be managed by the YMCA.
The city looked to the community for input on the facility by conducting a survey and as well as holding three charrettes in planning the design of the pool. Concepts were developed by Braun and Steidl Architects and Counsilman-Hunsaker, resulting in an aquatic center to attract all age groups.
