Project Overview

The original pool was constructed in 1963 and faithfully served the residents of Morton for 44 years without a major renovation. The Park District retained the services of Farnsworth and Associates in 2006 to review the current facility and prepare a recommendation for the facility. They determined that the best choice for the pool was to demolish the entire facility and construct a new pool at the same location. They prepared a design for a new pool that will serve the residents of Morton for 25+ years. The new "Family Aquatic Center" will include an 8 lane competitive pool with appropriate depth for starting blocks, a wading pool with a built in playground as part of the pool, two water slides, a 3 meter high dive and 1 meter low board, an attractive bathhouse, permanent shade areas for public comfort, turf areas for sun bathing, and Wi-Fi for onsite internet access.
