The Indiana Department of Natural Resources wanted to blend the best of modern convenience with the history of Prophetstown State Park, making an even more attractive repeat destination for both travelers and local residents. Requiring a low profile, compatible with the park’s prairie landscapes, Schmidt Associates accepted the challenge and designed an Aquatic Center that captures the beauty and the history of the picturesque prairie lands. The Aquatic Center includes a zero-entry leisure pool, water spray features, body and tube slides, a lazy river and plenty of lawn areas for sunbathing, among other amenities for the guests. The Aquatic Center was also designed with the new millennium in mind and offers the latest technological advances like wireless access for the guests, ensuring it will be a community destination for years to come.
