Municipal Pool Facility

Crompton Pool

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.
