Myrtha Pools designed and fabricated the pool structure, and their system provides for the fastest possible swim times and minimal turbulence. Other features include a 10-person spa, spray pad, 1-meter diving, mezzanine-level spectator seating for 300, party room, steam room, locker rooms, family changing and restrooms. The aquatics center took visual cues from the adjacent ice arena, gymnasium and other building elements to create a unifying element at the intersection of the primary streets serving the YMCA.
Dillon Family Aquatics Center
With the addition of the Dillon Family Aquatic Center, the Fremont Family YMCA became the largest YMCA owned-and-operated facility in the world. The center features a natatorium with an eight-lane 50-meter Olympic-size pool, and twelve lanes at 25 yards. It has become a significant regional draw for swimming meets, serving any length of race. Swim classes, training, and water aerobics are all important programs, and each will be served by the new center. The shallow end of the pool has a unique auxiliary heat system, to provide warm water jets beneath water exercise participants for short durations during classes. The system will reverse after classes to keep the overall pool temperature from elevating.
