The City of Worcester closed all nine of its municipal pools between 2005 and 2008 due to structural and mechanical failures. Crompton Park was the first to be renovated into a multi-generational aquatics facility. Weston & Sampson’s team of designers developed a design that addressed water-based recreation for all ages and abilities. The pool depth varies from "zero depth" to 5.5 feet to accommodate a waterslide. At the zero-depth entry, ground-mounted water spray elements were installed to offer water play for infants and toddlers. Overhead water spray elements were installed in the 18-inch-deep "wading" area, which also includes a submerged seat wall. Three lap lanes extend the length of the pool, and a water slide area is roped off for older kids to enjoy active water play. New bathhouse and filter buildings were designed by Lameroux Pagano Associates. Since 2011, Weston & Sampson has provided maintenance services for the pool under an aquatic maintenance contract for the city’s pools and splash parks.
