The Blue Springs Centennial Pool Plex was built on October 26, 1980 in celebration of the city’s centennial year. Starting as a 25 yard lap pool, this facility has seen many changes. Today, it features a wading pool with spray toys for the little tots, two water slides for the older ones and two diving boards that have you jumping into a 12-foot deep well. The Centennial Pool had been upgraded both in its style as well as its equipment. The Blue has been purchased by the BSSD School District in 2019.
The pool is now known across Blue Springs as ‘The Blue’. It’s unique bubble structure and large, outdoor, 50 meter pool are a staple to a great summer full of fun for any family. In fact, this facility has many visitors from outside of the area! The Blue has received the coveted ‘excellence in aquatics’ award. Come to The Blue and see for yourself what makes it so great!
