Year acquired
Size in acres

The center was completed in 1998. The Thompson Vaivoda Architects design included a future, two-pool natatorium. The 2002 Levy provided funding for its construction. The aquatic center was added in 2008 and received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The center's tower, bike racks, fences, and benches were designed by Garth Edwards, and in 2009 a stainless steel sculpture by local artist Bruce West was installed near the front entrance. Entitled Sitting Stones, it is a dynamic composition that reflects the changing light of the day and the season.
