Recreation and Aquatics Center
The City is designing a new recreation and aquatics center.
The City of Lake Oswego is bringing a recreation and aquatics center to the current Lake Oswego Municipal Golf Course property. The project is in the design phase.
The designs are being drafted to meet as many community needs as possible while staying within the project budget. Those needs include spaces for recreation, exercise/fitness and competition — both in water and out — as well as classrooms and offices.
Public outreach conducted in June 2019 identified the center as a prioritization for a portion of the parks bond money. Read about the outreach efforts.
Funding is through a joint partnership of the City and the Lake Oswego School District.
Changes to the golf course will be funded through the City.
We’ll give the community updates and ask for more feedback as we make progress on the design. Check this website for more information on current surveys, meetings and opportunities to join the conversation.
What we are doing now
Community meeting: A community meeting was held online on February 25, 2021. Thank you to all who participated. The meeting video and meeting summary can be found in the Other Materials on the right side.
Surveys: Thank you for all the responses on both the Recreational Pool Survey and the Dry Recreation Survey. Together we received close to 3000 responses! You can see a summary of the results in Other Materials on the right side.
Project Advisory Committee (PAC): The PAC will contribute expertise and insight into the design process for the Recreation and Aquatics Center. They have been meeting to give feedback to the design team to ensure the design meets the community needs.
There’s already a lot that’s been done.
We’re building on what the community told us during the 2019/2020 Recreation Aquatic Center Concept project. There has been a lot of work done already. The site and major elements were chosen based on what the community told us during the 2019/2020 Recreation Aquatic Center Concept project. Initial proposed concept drawings from March 2020.
The site at the municipal golf course is centrally located and saves the cost of the City buying land. Updates on the golf course.
The major elements so far:
- A 25-yard pool for lap swimming and competition, with spectator seating for 300
- A recreational pool
- Spaces for large group exercise, classes and other activities
- Parks and Recreation offices
- A redesigned 9-hole golf course
Now we’ve begun design. The community asked for other elements that we may be able to include in early drafts:
- A gym large enough for multiple uses and court sports
- Cardio and weightlifting areas
- Small group exercise areas
We’ll ask the community for feedback about all of these as we make progress on the design. We’ll work hard to meet as many needs as possible, but there may be tradeoffs.
Design will last most of 2021. When we’re done, we’ll submit documents and drawings for permitting, bidding, and finally construction. Construction is expected to begin Spring 2022.
