The North Natomas Community Center and Aquatics Complex brings the combination of new community center, aquatics complex and high school aquatics program together in one master facility that rivals any in the Sacramento region and is home to the only Olympic size pool in Sacramento. The $40 million complex, which is part of the 220-acre North Natomas Regional Park, features a community center with capacity for 350 people, a 50-meter competition pool, a 25-yard recreational pool, splash down pads, locker rooms, on-site parking and support facilities. The design features a community center that is integrated into the aquatics program by connecting the indoor to the outdoor and creates vistas, similar to the relationship of a grand living room with a beautifully landscaped backyard.
The Natomas area of Sacramento is home to approximately 55,000 residents and has experienced rapid population growth over the last 10 years. This project is an asset to the Natomas community and the greater Sacramento region, as well as Northern and Central California. The complex is also home to Inderkum High School’s aquatics program and hosts a variety of regional competitive swimming meets.
The Studio W Team originally conducted a feasibility study, which included a cost-benefit analysis of planning, financing, constructing and operating the proposed aquatic facility. The project was presented to the City Council in May 2017 where it was favorably received, thus approving funding to start on implementation and construction of the facility.
