The SMSD Aquatic Center is home to the largest pool in Johnson County.

The Shawnee Mission School District (SMSD) Aquatic Center facility serves local students and the entire community. This service is made possible through a partnership between the school district, Johnson County Parks and Recreation, and the City of Lenexa.

The design celebrates the spirit of competition with layers of transparency provided in each area of the building so that viewers both inside and out can see events happening within the building.

The SMSD Aquatic Center was constructed as part of a $223 million bond issue approved by voters who reside in the Shawnee Mission School District in 2015.
