Tonganoxie Water Park

Size:6 Lane Competition Pool
Location:Tonganoxie, Kansas
Architect:Sullivan Palmer Architects

The water park design incorporates many popular features, including two 25-foot-high waterslides, a toddler pool, a spray ground, six 25-meter lanes, two three-meter diving boards, zero-depth entry, natural and artificial shade structures, overhead lighting, landscaping that includes numerous plantings and lawn areas within the park fencing, a new bathhouse and staff-lifeguard-concessions building, and patron furnishings.

The features and layout attract and allow for use by all ages from toddlers to seniors. The park generally separates age groups toward features and activity areas: youth and teens are attracted to the slides and diving area, toddlers generally play in the toddler pool and spray ground, families and seniors like the zero-depth area, and fitness swimmers use the lap lanes. This design adds ease for the patrons and their families.
