Northwest Recreation Center, Salt Lake City, Utah

When the Northwest Recreation Center started showing signs of its age, Salt Lake County decided to use a combination of ZAP tax dollars and other funding to build a new facility. The entire project was a LEED Gold certified, and much of the material produced from the demolition were either re-used or recycled. Along with the LEED rating, the pool was designed with the environment in mind- the filters use alternative filtration methods that allow for minimal water consumption.

The facility has a Myrtha technology eight lane by 25 yard competition pool with 2 ADA accessible entries. The leisure pool is also a Myrtha technology system with a large waterslide, zero entry, ADA accessible ramp and a children ‘frog slide’ surrounded with floor bubblers. The pool also has a large lazy river with an integrated vortex pool. The ADA compliant elevated play structure completes this pool, and provides play opportunities for all guests.
