northridge recreation center upgrades to aquaclimb to replace outdated diving board

The Northridge Recreation Center had been holding swim competitions in their dive well, which had two diving boards.  When it was time to replace the diving boards, they found that they were not compliant with certain competition standards. 

The team at Highlands Ranch decided to transition the one diving board to general recreation while exploring other ways to update the facility by replacing the 2nd dive board.

“I had researched the climbing wall after seeing it at another facility,” said Karl Brehm, Aquatics Coordinator for the facility. “I saw how important it was there, and we do try to offer something different at each of our recreation centers.”

Lake county colorado adds aquaclimb climbing wall, attracting more group revenue

The Lake County Aquatic Center had removed their aging slide from their indoor pool due to liability concerns.  It was showing wear but also not being used.  After removal, the Recreation Department started looking for a new amenity that would be used by kids and adults alike. 

The Recreation Director, Amber Magee, had seen the AquaClimb climbing wall at another facility and sent the Recreation Department on a site inspection. 

It was love at first sight.  The team decided that they wanted an AquaClimb and decided on a two panel wide by four panel tall Classic Plus Glacier.
