Shadle Park Pool

Spokane, WA

This new pool and bathhouse was designed to replace pools that were removed as part of the remodel and expansion of Shadle Park High School. The design goals for this project included creating a new facility that presented a welcoming face to the neighborhood and fit comfortably in the surrounding context, providing a functional yet exciting new pool with components to serve the needs of multi-generational users, and maximizing the land use of the existing park by enhancing a synergy of recreational opportunities.

The general character of the project is defined by two significant elements. The pool is visually identified by colorful elements including an in-water play structure, a large double water slide, other smaller water features, and large shading umbrellas. The bathhouse takes on a contemporary, monumental, semi-residential character.
