Centerville Municipal Pool
Centerville, IA | Sports + Recreation
ISG worked with the City of Centerville on renovations to its municipal pool after a series of community engagement efforts.
The Centerville Pool needed new renovations to meet modern accessibility and safety requirements.
The Centerville Municipal Pool has a rich history dating back to the late 1930s when the project was constructed as part of the Work Projects Administration (WPA). A renovation of the Pool in the 1980s helped update the facility; however, the facility was in need of continued renovations to meet current accessibility, health, and safety requirements. In addition, renovations to the Pool site and amenities were integrated into the City-wide initiative to enhance the lives of Centerville residents and further support the area’s commitment to health and wellness.
To do so, ISG worked collaboratively with the City of Centerville to ensure the Pool renovation creates an amenity that is effectively integrated into the surrounding parks master plan. This included a highly engaging public involvement process that helped the City obtain valuable insight from the community while also building consensus and support for the project. Designs include bathhouse renovations, addition of zero depth entry replace pool filter system, construction of the filter system, pool reconstruction, and additional amenities throughout the site. ADA accessibility, stormwater drainage, and budget management were significant drivers of overall design goals.
