The Ecology of Water...

 

The center features a full regulation size pool that is also  covered by a new undulating roof.  Indoors, to the south a children’s wading pool and small therapeutic pools within the vaults.  To the north, the historic vaults become a demonstration cell revealing the original slow sand filtration process.  This acts like a cistern to store and treat the water from the pools.  This area corresponds to the unique ecology of water and sand and introduces a water sequence throughout the park.
