Ridgewood Swim Club
This neighborhood swim club was built in the early 1960s and has been enormously popular among families for generations. It has seen the expansion of two additional pools as well as other improvements over the ensuing decades.
Although the community had been an excellent steward there was still a need to develop a master plan for key improvements in order to address long-term needs. It included new facilities for:
1. Combination family/lap/competition pool
2. Diving vessel
3. Children's wading pool
4. Pool house
5. A safer drop-off area and parking lot
The new pool deck area is designed to create large and small gathering spaces, flexibility for special events and provisions for all-city swim meets.
In addition, the pool house calls for an adaptive reuse for office, storage and snack facilities and an open-air covered pavilion which is long overdue. The parking lot is reconfigured to provide for an accessible drop-off area and a safer circulation route for pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles.
The project is currently in design.
