The Gert Town Natatorium is located at 3411 Broadway Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70125. The building consists of 14,000 sf and was designed by HMS Architects. The Natatorium features a 6 lane, 25 yard competition pool of sufficient depth (10′) for life guard training. It also features women’s, men’s, and life guard locker rooms along with individual dressing and shower rooms. Bleacher seating will be located adjacent to the pool and a snack bar will be located in the lobby. The building will be located on the same city block as the new NOPD Second District Police Station. A shade plaza will be located between the two buildings and portions of the parking lot will utilize pervious paving to minimize run-off. The Facility will open in May, 2018.
