Project Detail Information
Valparaiso’s Aquatics Feasibility Study was completed as part of a larger project which included a Master Plan and a Strategic Management Plan for the Parks Department. The Aquatics Feasibility Study consisted of several steps of study, including: perception of aquatic need; city, corporate and public feasibility; design / costs projections; demand / use feasibility; program / design feasibility; conceptual design feasibility and fiscal feasibility.
Focus groups met throughout the course of the study to assist in defining the project and its components. An on-site design charrette was held by the project team, allowing the community to see the design process and to participate in the presentation of the Conceptual Design.
The proposed aquatics facility has a bather capacity of 1,500 persons. A detailed site master plan was prepared as part of this process, examining the potential of other site uses compatible for the overall development on a 35 acre park property called Foundation Meadows Park.
The study will be used by the City of Valparaiso as they move toward the next steps of implementation.
