Family Fun Aquatic Center ™

Halstead, KS

Introducing our new aquatic center concept! The Carrothers Family Fun Aquatic Center ™ in Halstead, Kansas is a state-of-the-art facility with world class features that are normally found only in custom designed facilities that are much more expensive. The features begin with a continuous cast-in-place concrete gutter system arranged so that the water elevation is at deck height keeping the water "edge to edge" at the perimeter of the pool. Adding a special emphasis on safety, this facility incorporates an out of pool surge tank breaking the water connection of the recirculation piping from the pump to the main drain and an innovative main drain design eliminate entrapment potential on the pool bottom. We round out the feature set with a "zero entry" component with an interactive spray array on the pool deck. For entertainment options the Owner chose a baby dragon tot slide, a Mushroom water feature that has a cascade of water flowing down, and an umbrella shade structure at the zero entry play area and at the deep end of the pool a diving area and an open flume waterslide. There is also a masonry bathhouse, with changing area and concessions. The restrooms were designed so that they may be accessed from the exterior, making them available to people from the neighboring ball diamonds.

Total Water Surface Area of Pools: 3,910 Square Feet
