We developed conceptual design renderings for an outdoor pool proposal at the Downeast Family Y, in Ellsworth. The area for the proposed pool is currently used for skateboarding. The swimming program at the Y is popular and growing. Opportunities to swim outdoors are limited in eastern Maine. There are fewer opportunities to swim competitively. This pool would provide a location for recreation and competition. This is an example of work done to support a capital campaign.

We developed the scheme to be compliant with  USA swimming standards, as well as standards for handicap accessibility. The project also has a changing and concession building that shields the swim area from most of the traffic on Route 1A.
