Cobb Aquatics SPLOST Projects

Cobb County Parks Aquatics Unit has multiple SPLOST projects at the Aquatic Facilities.

The First Project to be completed was the renovation of the Mountain View Aquatic Center.  Mountain View upgraded the HVAC units that control the air quality in the Natatorium with new Seresco units and Paddock Evacuator Benches.  The combination of the 2 units pulls chlorinated air off the surface of the pool so that swimmers and spectators are relieved of breathing the heavy chlorinated air which provides a better environment for both swimmers and spectators. Mountain View also received a face-lift with new paint throughout the facility and the resurfacing of both the 50 meter lap pool and the instructional pool.

The South Cobb Aquatic Center also installed new Paddock Evacuator Benches and received a new paint job as well as having the pool resurfaced and play structure repainted.

The Central Aquatic Center had both pools resurfaced and the facility was repainted

The West Cobb Aquatic Center has been repainted and the pool resurfaced and has had a new Pool Pack HVAC unit installed along with the Paddock Evacuator Benches.  Additionally the West Cobb Aquatic Center underwent a roof replacement as well as improvements to the lobby and office areas as well as upgrades in the landscaping around the facility.

The Sewell Park Pool renovations included removing the small wading pool and junior pools that were seldom used and installing a new "Splash Pad" with fun spray features that kids and adults of all ages will enjoy.  We also replaced the old bath house and filter rooms at Sewell Park Pool.

In 2015 we opened a new Water Park at Wild Horse Creek Park in Powder Springs called Seven Springs Water Park.  The water park includes 2 water slides, a lazy river and plenty of fun activities for kids of all ages.

The Aquatics unit is nationally recognized as one of the best and received the 2007 National Recreation and Park Association’s Excellence in Aquatics Award. Cobb has four indoor aquatic facilities located in Marietta, Northeast Cobb, West Cobb, and South Cobb, and two outdoor facilities in East Cobb and Powder Springs. You can learn more here.

The Aquatics Unit serves over 500,000 Cobb County residents annually, through four indoor aquatic centers and two outdoor pools. The unit has 13 full time staff and over 100 part time lifeguards which provides services including: the Learn To Swim Program; the Cobb Summer Swim Leagues; Aqua-Aerobics Classes; Adaptive Aquatics Programs; Military and Boy Scout training; Lifeguard Training and Water Safety Instructor; and general recreational swimming.
