The City of Hazelwood, MO hired Capri Pools & Aquatics to build a state of the art $6.5 million dollar outdoor aquatic center to replace a 40 year-old pool and bathhouse. The City was outstanding to work with, allowing Capri to implement unique design ideas including a 360 degree Buddle slide, which is one of only four in the United States.
The White Birch Park Aquatic Center has 16,700 sq ft of water surface. Specialty features include a 380 linear ft wave river and a 1,200 sq ft tot wave pool with an attached spray pad. White Birch also has a 6-lane, 25-yard lap pool with 1-meter diving. A zero entry leisure pool incorporates a large participatory play area with a dumping bucket. When wave generation is not in use the wave river can be used as a current/lazy river and there is a vortex feature and underwater benches.
Water falls, pergolas and shade structures along with a 12 month building used for meetings and conferences during the winter months make this facility flexible and a benefit to the community year-round.
