The Black Bob Pool was originally constructed in 1988 and began to have problems immediately after its opening.  In 2005, the City of Olathe hired Waters Edge to provide evaluation services for the facility, and again in 2008 to provide the renovation design.  The redesigned facility preserved and improved the lap pool, diving pool, and dressing rooms in the bathhouse.  Recreational pools, a lazy river, and a play structure were added to transform the pool into a modern aquatic center with entertaining and engaging water features.
