2020 All-Star Community Award – Iowa League of Cities

8,004 sq. ft. of water surface area

The Sibley Municipal Pool had originally opened in 1956 and had undergone renovations in the 80s, 90s and again more recently, opening back up in 2019.

The pool was experiencing unsustainable daily water loss and the concrete structure started failing. The city wanted to add several new features while keeping as much of the pool structure as possible. With Waters Edge’s help in the planning process, Sibley’s residents passed a funding vote in 2017 and the renovation began.

The original zero-depth area was demolished and rebuilt, the basin was re-designed to have sectioned areas for certain features and lap lanes were added. A portion of the deck was renovated to accommodate a splash pad with additional fencing allowing access to the splash pad outside of pool hours.
