Conceptual Site Plan

The site plan below was prepared by Field Landscape Architecture in collaboration with the VaHi Pool Association. The plan is intended to illustrate the potential for the Field of Dreams and serve as a reference point for discussions with the community and Atlanta Public Schools.

The site plan contains the following elements:

  • 4,000 sqft, 2-story pool house

  • Main swimming pool (more details below)

  • Separate baby pool

  • Bike parking

  • Drop-off loop capable of accommodating buses

  • 3 ADA accessible parking spots

  • Picnic area

  • Multiple seating areas (shaded & non-shaded)

  • 2 Pickleball courts

Pool Dimensions and Features

The main pool will be designed to allow for a large free swim area and up to 10 swim lanes. The pool can be thought of having 3 sections that can serve various purposes depending on time of year and the activities taking place.

The pool will have a very similar layout to Garden Hills but be 6 yards longer to allow for additional swim lanes and a larger free swim area. See the image below for a to scale comparison.

The pool will be “bubbled” for year round use

A temporary structure (or “bubble”) will be installed over the pool in the cooler months so the pool may be used for year-round swimming. This is a common practice with outdoor pools, as seen in the picture below.
