Gladstone Community Center

The City of Gladstone partnered with the North Kansas City School District to envision this new community asset. The facility — which includes an aquatic center, fitness spaces, community rooms and banquet facilities — is located in Gladstone’s historic Central Park, adjacent to the existing outdoor pool and city hall. Sited on a rolling hill, the building is recessed into the ground on two sides to minimize its scale.

The City of Gladstone has a longstanding swimming tradition. The aquatic center contains a large competition venue that seats 1,500 spectators and includes a state-of-the-art 25-yard competition pool, diving well and warm up pool, and an interactive leisure pool.
