Hillyard Pool

Spokane, WA

The Hillyard neighborhood is located on Market Street in Northeast Spokane. The original 1950’s rectangular lap pool facilities were inefficient and did not satisfy today’s aquatic experience expectations for families. ALSC was hired by the City of Spokane Parks and Recreation Department to do an analysis of existing conditions, determine what elements could remain and those that needed replacement, meet with the public to determine current and future programming needs, and design the new facility.

Our study determined that the new programming needs of the neighborhood could not be facilitated within the existing pool tank on the tight site; however, the bathhouse was conducive to cost-effective renovation and expansion to support the new pool tank. This approach resulted in a brand new 50-year-plus facility with all of the modern amenities desired by the neighborhood. The new pool provides multiple amenities including a zero-depth entry, vortex, water slides and a 6-lane 25-yard lap pool.
