Cherokee Aquatic Center

Cherokee, IA | Sports + Recreation

Overview

ISG worked with the Cherokee community to design a new aquatic center equipped with trails, observation areas, and a shelter.


Opportunity

With an aging swimming facility, the City of Cherokee decided to remove its previous pool to make way for a new larger aquatic park.

Solution

Cherokee’s swimming facility was nearly half a century old and needed to be upgraded if it was to remain in service. After careful evaluation, the community’s recommendation included the complete removal of the old pool and bathhouse, and the construction of a new facility that was much larger than the previous complex and required extensive reshaping of the 8.2 acre park. In addition to the new pool facility, reconstruction also provided new walking trails, observation areas and a shelter and stage for picnics and concerts. The new complex is extremely successful and draws many more recreational users. As a result, revenue—as well as community pride—has increased dramatically.
