Wills Park Pool Renovation, Stevens & Wilkinson, Atlanta GAATLANTA (May 24, 2018)Stevens & Wilkinson, a full-service architecture, engineering and interior design firm, will celebrate the grand opening of the renovated Wills Park Pool and Aquatic Center on Saturday, May 26. The ceremony will be located at Wills Park pool at 1815 Old Milton Parkway and will begin at 9:30 a.m.

The 46,000-square-foot project, which officially broke ground in August 2017, consists of a 6,000-square-foot pool house, a 10-lane competition pool with diving boards, a 5,600-square-foot leisure pool and the addition of shade pavilions and other amenities. The leisure pool includes zero-depth entry, interactive play stations, space for open play and classes, and a water slide with plunge area. The competition pool ranges in depths from four feet to 12.5 feet and includes both one- and three-meter diving boards. New amenities also include updated locker rooms, additional deck space and a renovated pool house. Updates to the pool house included the addition of training rooms for lifeguards and staff, and renovated shower facilities.

“It’s exciting to see our work on the Wills Park aquatic center become a reality,” said Tanya Richard, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Senior Architect at Stevens & Wilkinson. “This new center will provide Alpharetta with a premier swimming experience and give families and competition swimmers alike a place to swim.”

Last year, the Alpharetta City Council was awarded a $5.47 million contract to renovate the pool and aquatic center. The pool is seeing its first update since its construction in 1987. The pool closed on July 31, 2017 and funding for the project was approved as part of the city’s capital budget. Sunbelt Builders is the construction firm that executed the project designed by Stevens & Wilkinson.
