The Shawnee Mission Board of Education approved the contracts that clear the way for work to begin on a multi-million dollar aquatic center in the heart of Lenexa’s new city center next month in Lenexa, Kansas on Monday. The aquatic center will provide a state-of-the-art home for the district’s swimming programs to host meets.

Right now, the district has to travel a little ways down the road to Olathe, Kansas to rent time at its school district’s aquatic facility to host meets. The new facility in Lenexa would help provide more space for more spectators to attend meets.

The new pool will have space to hold up to 500 competitors and 1,000 spectators. It will include a 50-meter pool with a 16-foot-depth diving well. Adjacent to the competition pool is a 25-yard pool which will be used for training and recreation activities. A climate controlled observation deck will also be available for spectators to escape the swimming pool humidity during competitions.
