Expansion project in the works at Southside Family Aquatics Center

An expansion project is in the works at the Southside Aquatics Facility at Prairie View Park. 

Spokane County approved an agreement with Wesslen Consctuction Inc. on Tuesday to expand aquatics amenties at the center. The $916,000 enhancement project will use funds from Real Estate Excise Tax funds. 

Included in the expansion will be two additional water slides, an expanded pool deck, and added umbrella areas for shade. The project will also include repairs to the lazy river, as well as imrpvements inside the pool’s equipment room. 

“The addition of these exciting water slides and expanded pool deck will help set this facility apart from other community pools in the area.” Said Kris Krohn, Park Planner and Landscape Architect for Spokane County Parks. 

Construction is expected to break ground after the 2019 aquatics season.
