City Aquatic Center

The City Council approved $30 million to fund the Alameda City Aquatic Center, located on the western side of Sweeney Park, near Atlantic Avenue and Constitution Way. The Council approved the Conceptual Design in 2022 and that will be used as a starting point for the current project design. Significant further public input and redesign will occur. The current design includes a 30-meter competitive pool, a 4,430 square foot zero-depth entry recreational pool with water activity features and a water slide, and a supporting facility with locker rooms, office, mechanical rooms and a multi-purpose room.

Building the Aquatic Center at Sweeney Park also provides opportunity to complete build-out of the entire park (11 acres of the 25 acres are completed). The planned community garden and Alameda Free Library Tool Lending Library are proposed to be completed as part of the Aquatic Center project construction. This approach also presents economies of scale to complete the site grading and infrastructure installation for the remainder of the park while doing that work for the Aquatic Center project. These park components will be included in the design process, however, inclusion of these park components in the construction will be determined upon final cost estimates. Funding and construction of the Aquatic Center project is the priority for the $30 million project budget.
