The Murray Park Aquatic Center was a huge improvement for the City of South Miami. The project, located on the east side of the City near major thoroughfares, is ideally positioned to serve the City’s lower income population. Consisting of a swimming pool, splash deck and related support building, the project provides the community with aquatic recreation opportunities, as well as life-critical educational experiences through learn-to-swim programming. The Aquatics Center’s Splash Pad is a safe and refreshing recreational water play system composed of nozzles and structures producing an array of water spray options used to cool off, play, and enjoy. This is a great swimming pool alternative for small children – requiring little supervision because there is no standing water and zero water depth. The Splash Pad can accommodate up to 22 persons. The 3,446 sf main pool sports three (3) swimming lanes and can accommodate up to 64 bathers. There are two restroom/locker facilities, a family restroom and an administrative office. The project also includes a lightning warning system for the safety of the patrons and surrounding community.
Through its collaboration with Recreational Design and Construction and its team members, the City of South Miami was able to plan and construct a facility that meets its programming needs and serves the community, while staying within very tight budget constraints.
