“Splash Cove” Jim Allen Aquatic Center

Shawnee’s 7,600-square-foot leisure pool and 6,600-square-foot bathhouse complex opened in late spring 2007 for use by the residents and guests. It was designed to complement existing buildings. The design plan provides an open view of the pool area and bathhouse to passers by. It is located next to the city’s “Old Town” and greatly complements the city’s goal of giving the old city center a new image.

The design concept behind this facility is to “Shrink the five-year-old down to the size of a small fish in a sea world.” In addition to the marine themed play structure, there’s also a kid-sided wave pool.

Splash Cove replaced an outdated pool and was geared toward small children because an existing outdoor family aquatic center accommodates the needs of the general population. It is located next to the adjoining Wonderscope children’s museum.
