ORB Architects worked with Spokane Valley Parks and Recreation Department to provide design and construction services for the remodel of three existing outdoor pools: Valley Mission, Park Road and Terrace View. The city wanted to increase attraction to its three pools without sacrificing instructional or swim meet capabilities.

ORB created multiple outdoor pool concepts and presented them at a series of public meetings, including one city-wide meeting for community input and consideration. The overall concept was unanimously approved. Construction began in 2008 and was completed in time for the start of the 2009 swim season.

City of Spokane held a naming contest for the new three-story slide at Park Road Pool. Nicole Livingston proposed the winning name—The Park Pool Plunge—and christened the new slide by being the first person to take the plunge.

"Thank you for an outstanding job at the public meetings and for your informative presentation
to City Council. From my perspective, it couldn't have gone any smoother. Thanks for listening carefully to the public and delivering a plan that is tailor-made to our city."
