This new Aquatic Facility is located in the City of Miami Springs; a wonderful small town of 14,000 residents in the heart of Miami Dade County, founded in 1926.  One of the first planned communities in Florida, it had an intended architectural theme which was Pueblo revival architecture.  It remains a close-knit community and has managed to keep its small-town flavor.  The complex is a neighborhood aquatic facility located adjacent to an existing Community Center, it replaces an existing pool which had served the community for decades. The design includes four separate buildings, which surround the pool deck, creating a buffer for the neighboring houses. The new pool combines an eight-lane lap pool, a learn-to-swim area with a large slide, and a zero entry area with play features. The four buildings are an Office/Entry Building, a Concession Building, the Bath House and a Multipurpose Building with a catering kitchen. The scale and detailing of the buildings is an interpretation of the Pueblo revival style found in the historic buildings of the city.
