City Seeks Input On Aquatics Master Plan

City of Wichita

City officials, along with Parks and Recreation, are seeking public feedback regarding the Aquatics Master Plan.

The plan, announced last month, calls for the replacement of four of the city’s 10 swimming pools--McAdams, Orchard, Boston and Linwood--with water playgrounds. 

In addition, Edgemoor Swimming Pool will be renovated and will open again 2020. The remaining five pools will be updated over the next seven years. The Parks and Recreation Department plans to spend $18 million on the changes.

Residents can weigh in on the proposed changes to neighborhood pools and the planned expansion of operating hours at a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Edgemoor Recreation Center.

The Aquatics Master Plan has been in the works since 2012. The city says the plan was updated earlier this year using information from public surveys.
