The existing site for the municipal pool offered limited room for expansion, leaving the City and Waters Edge no choice but to develop a plan for a site adjacent to the existing indoor pool.  Developing the facility adjacent to the indoor facility allowed for significant cost saving because both facilities could share parking space and staff.  Originally planned to include a lazy river, the project was divided into two phases based on projected funding.  Popular acceptance of phase 1 development encouraged rapid development  of phase 2, the Adventure River addition, which features many rockscapes with multiple waterfalls.
