Aquatics CenterThe City of El Segundo and Wiseburn Unified School District are currently seeking the necessary funds from large corporate and personal donors to bring a world-class aquatics center to the South Bay. The El Segundo Aquatics Center embodies the spirit of health and fitness, and will not only benefit the students but the general public. The outdoor swimming complex located at 201 N. Douglas Ave. will provide expanded times for community swim lessons and fitness classes. The facility will be home to both Wiseburn Unified School District and El Segundo High School varsity and junior varsity swim and water polo teams. Local swim club teams and adult water polo teams will also have access to the
facility.

Some features of the new aquatics center will include:

  • 53.2 x 25 meter, 10-lane competition pool with expanded “L” area
  • Two moveable bulkheads
  • A 25-yard, four-lane teaching and fitness pool
  • Permanent bleachers, scoreboards, and sports lighting

Richard Lundquist, Executive Director South Bay Sports, Health & Recreation pledged $2 million to the new pool and is spearheading the fundraising campaign to cover the
additional construction costs. All proceeds will go to the El Segundo Aquatics Center at Wiseburn High School pool, as well as refurbishing “The Plunge,” at Urho Saari Swim
Stadium.

“This center is being built with the future of the community in mind and we need the community’s support and donations to make this vision a reality.” – Richard Lundquist

Sponsors of the world-class facility include the Los Angeles Lakers, Kinecta, Skechers, Toyota and Continental Development Corporation. Levels of sponsorships available for
businesses and community partners can be found on the website, esquatics.org or by contacting Sherry Kramer, community affairs director, skramer@continentaldevelopment.com.
