A Cooperative Venture


The Roeland Park Aquatic Center officially opened on September 20, 1997. Discussions between the City of Roeland Park and the Johnson County Park about the possible construction of a new facility began nearly four years earlier and were triggered by the closure in 1993 of an obsolete city pool. An intergovernmental agreement allowed the City to sell the District the approximately four acres the complex sits on. The city in turn agreed to lease-purchase the facility back from the Park District over 20 years. To construct the facility, the District issued $3.3 million in revenue bonds, which freed the city from adding to its bond indebtedness.

Amenities


The RPAC features a 50-meter inverted "C"-shaped pool with a 25-yard by-25-meter competitive area; four 50-meter lap swimming lanes, and a "zero-depth" entry area including sprayers and fountains. Other amenities available include a bath house complete with men's and women's locker rooms, a family change room, a concession area, expanded parking and a convenient drop-off circle drive, as well as staff offices and a control area, a 120-foot water slide and a separate youth pool with whale slide and "lemon drop" sprayer.

Healthy Swimming


Cryptosporidium (Crypto), an intestinal parasite that can make people sick for several days. Given that Crypto is a warm water parasite and its resistance to chlorine, it is important that people take precautions to help reduce the risk of another regional outbreak.

Here are some important facts to keep in mind:
  • Alcohol based sanitizers do not kill Crypto - wash your hands with hot, soapy water.
  • The only feasible way for pool operators to reduce the risk of Crypto entering the pool is through good public education and awareness.
  • Crypto can be spread long before and after symptoms start.
  • It takes time for chlorine to work on germs like Crypto; it takes everyone to help protect the pool water!
