Aquatic Facilities Plan to Spend $5.5 Million on Construction

According to Recreation Management's State of the Industry Report, respondents whose facilities included aquatic elements such as swimming pools, splash pads and hot tubs were planning to spend 16.8% more on construction than those whose facilities do not include aquatics. Aquatic respondents in 2021 were planning to spend $5,500,000, while those without aquatics were planning to spend $4,710,000. However, non-aquatic respondents have seen their average construction spending grow at a much faster clip over the past five years than aquatic respondents. Non-aquatic respondents reported a 27.6% higher budget for construction in 2021 than in 2017, while aquatic respondents' construction budgets in 2021 were just 15.2% higher than in 2017.
