Salt City Splash Aquatic Center
Several years ago, Hutchinson operated three outdoor pools. After an evaluation report prepared by Larkin Aquatics, the city confirmed the pressing need for extensive renovation or repair of all three pools. The Hutchinson Recreation Committee studied the feasibility alternatives, and decided to replace one of the existing pools at Carey Park. This enhanced the park's appeal which included a zoo and other attractions. The design included the construction of a new swimming pool aquatic facility consisting of four separate pools; a 1,720 square foot wading pool, shallow play pool of 7,084 square feet, a 530 square feet plunge pool, and a main pool of 10,696 square feet. Water features include water slides, drop slides, diving boards, water sprays, a water play structure, and other fun features. A bathhouse, concession building, office structure, and filter building were also built.
Total Water Surface Area of Pools: 20,000 Square Feet
