The City of Gladstone, Missouri, along with the North Kansas City School District came together as partners to build a competition-quality natatorium as part of the new community center. The community center is a facility for everyone–from toddlers to seniors–and features a wellness center, walking track, multipurpose gym and 4,500 square feet of conference space, complete with the latest in high-end technology. The indoor competitive aquatic center comprised slightly more than half of the project. It includes eight 25-yard lanes, a separate competition diving well, warm-up pool with four 20-yard lanes, leisure pool and seating for more than 1,500 spectators. The facility is capable of hosting state high school and college swim meets.
