As part of the planning process for the St. Charles Park District’s 2005 Master Plan, the Park Board of Commissioners solicited the thoughts and preferences of residents through a professionally administered community survey. To respond to evolving needs, in 2007, the District appointed the Aquatics Ad Hoc Advisory Committee which met over a series of months to study program and facility needs.
Upon recommendation of the committee, the Park Board sought voter approval of a $25 million referendum which included construction of a swimming pool complex. Voters overwhelmingly approved the referendum in February 2008.
Working with Williams Architects and Williams Construction Management, the Park District envisioned a full-service aquatic facility to accommodate all people of all ages and interests. In addition to offering a state-of-the-art facility, the District provides a comprehensive schedule of swim lessons, lap swim, lifeguard training, special events and a swim team.
