Underwood Pool

Belmont, MA

BH+A designed a new outdoor pool and bathhouses to replace the existing century-old facility on the 3.8 acre Underwood Park site.  The new Underwood Pool includes 2 multi-generational pools, one for lap swimming and diving and one for families, as well as an east and west bathhouse. The pool includes a zero depth entry, slide, diving area, lap lanes and stray features. Two separate filtration systems allow the pool to be open at all times. BH+A completed a study considering the feasibility of replacement or relocation of the pool and bathhouse on site. The study included development of conceptual plans, cost estimates, and working with the community, town officials and boards to evaluate alternatives. Subsequently BH+A was awarded a contract for full design services.
