The goal of the study is to understand the conditions of the existing pool and develop options to improve and enhance the swimming pool in the future.
The current Cheney swimming pool was built in 1958, and consists of a main pool and separate wading pool. The pool structure, piping, and deck is old. A pool liner was added 13 years ago in 2008 due to the pool structure delaminating, and the liner is at the end of it's useful life. The pool offers an outdated style, and lacks shallow water and modern features. The bathhouse is also old, and there is one area showing movement in the foundation/walls. The building lacks floor drainage, has old lighting and plumbing fixtures, and lacks ADA accessibility.
Main Pool: Offers 3,280 s.f. of water surface, and is 3 - 11 feet deep The main pool includes the following features: 5, 25-meter lap lanes, waterslide, two (2), 1-meter diving boards, and a basketball goal.
Wading Pool: Offers 450 s.f. of water surface and shade.
Existing Cheney Swimming Pool
Goals for the New Aquatic Center:
Offer a new outdoor aquatic center that is updated with features and amenities that serve a variety of users and abilities, with flexible spaces and varying depths. Serving the residents of Cheney and offering a new amenity to the community is important, along with offering sprays and play features that are fun for children and accommodating swim team practice and meets.
Additionally, the splash pad is situated so that it could be used outside of pool hours and is in close proximity to the existing park shelter.

The concept includes an all new 6,087 s.f. pool and renovated bathhouse on the site of existing Cheney Swimming Pool.
