Project Type


Chillicothe, Missouri

Year Completed


Working with the City & Chillicothe’s pool planning committee a “tropical island” theme was selected for design and branding. With this in mind, Waters Edge set out to develop a tropical oasis in the Midwest. Designers transformed the existing structures with a new wide bulkhead wall, a revised plunge area, and to complete the oasis, a Lazy River, multiple large waterslides, a log roll, play structure, and a transparent climbing wall were all added.

Originally built in 1963, Chillicothe set out to create something truly special from their existing traditional pool. As far back as the early 90s, Waters Edge Aquatic Design staff (prior to forming our company) had been involved with the initial additions and renovations of the existing pool beginning with the separate plunge area addition and renovation of the facility from a traditional “L” Shaped pool into three, separate pool designs. It wasn’t until 2013 that the complete renovation of the facility from a traditional municipal pool into a fully designed waterpark would emerge.
