Have you ever seen a pool with a Swather? Home of the “Swathers” – Hesston wanted to provide a community amenity that would support multiple forms of recreational use, as well as the local swim team. The roughly 7,000 sf integrated pool includes a zero depth entry complete with a Swather themed toddler slide as well as a vertical tipping cherry bucket feature and shaded water bench seating. Attached is also a plunge pool with a family slide, the pool was designed to be large enough for a future slide expansion. As you move further into deeper water you will also find the integrated 8 lane competition pool. The competitive pool features deep water with dual 1 meter diving boards, starting platforms and a water basketball goal. The facility also supports a shaded concessions area, shaded deck seating, and a naturally lit bathhouse. The multi use pool provides ease of maintenance in lieu of separate bodies of water to achieve the same effect. Nestled nearby the adjacent sport facility the modest agricultural theme supports the local team while also giving residents a way to stay active and cool in the summer.
