‘The Bay’ Wins SKC Pool Naming Contest

Come Memorial Day weekend, South Kansas City residents will be able to take a refreshing dip in...The Bay!
‘The Bay Aquatics Center’ was voted by local residents as the winning name for the new outdoor pool facility at Longview Tract in south Kansas City.
Last month, Kansas City, Missouri Parks and Recreation had asked residents to help name the new facility by voting for their favorite of three name choices: The Bay, The Lagoon or H2Ozone.
“We had 534 votes, online and paper ballots,” said Heidi Downer, Marketing Director for KCMO Parks and Recreation.
The final tallies were close, with a tie in the online votes. Paper ballots collected at Hillcrest Community Center made the difference in the final vote:
• The Bay: 197
• H2Ozone: 195
• Lagoon: 142
The new $7 million facility will be located on the site of the former YMCA and current Longview Tract park and sprayground at 7101 Longview Road. The Bay Aquatics Center will include a zero entry pool, lap pool, lazy river and water slides.
