Verrado Heritage Pool and Park Complex

Buildings and Facilities // Arizona Landscape Architecture Design

This three-acre community pool and park is located in the heart of the Verrado Community Heritage District. Landscape architecture firm Logan Simpson led the design of the pool and the amenity areas, including grilling areas, a fire pit, and several gathering spaces around the pool. The pool itself is a resort-style layout with two levels. The lower level is a wading pool with a beach entry and splash pad that is tailored to kids. The larger pool on the upper level has a beach entry and several subareas for relaxing and play. The surrounding landscape architecture design will become enhanced desert garden oasis that help visitors to the Heritage Swim Park feel like they have escaped to a top-end resort. The Heritage Swim Park is full of inventive and stylish amenities that transform the community pool into a resort oasis. Landscape areas and shaded seating areas are close to the pool’s edge to increase visibility of the pool area and offer intimate spaces. The lower level pool is tailored to young children and their parents offers an expansive water play experience with resort-level detail. Even some of the furniture in this space is sized for kids. Beyond the pool, the resort experience continues with garden paths, BBQ grills, ramadas that open to grassy areas, a fire pit seating area, and a community gathering space with one end adjacent to the Heritage Pavilion.
