ELM completes Nocatee aquatics park

The environmental design firm of Ervin Lovett Miller (ELM, has completed theNocatee Splash Water Park Aerial View.small Nocatee Splash Water Park, located in the master-planned Nocatee community in Ponte Vedra. ELM served as the architect and landscape architect for the aquatics facility, which is scheduled to open April 10 as the only one of its kind and size in the region.

 “The developer of Nocatee, The PARC Group, requested an aquatics and recreational facility that was consistent with the quality and feel of the Nocatee community,” said ELM partner Russ Ervin. “Our goal was to design an aquatics center commensurate with the size of the community while also considering Nocatee’s future growth. As a result, we have designed the aquatics park, both in materials and architecture, to grow with the community while maintaining its lasting quality and value.”

The completed Nocatee Splash Water Park includes an array of interactive water features including: a 53-foot slide tower with dual high-speed slides that will be known as the Rip Tide Slides; a 450-foot Lazy Tides River; a 9,500 square-foot lagoon pool; and Splash Cove, an interactive spray ground with a zero-entry shallow-access pool for children. The aquatics facility has been designed to allow for expansion as the community continues to grow.

Designed within the Nocatee Splash Water Park are additional recreational amenities designed by ELM including cabanas for concessions and restrooms, sand volleyball courts, a formal event lawn, three activity lawns, and a children’s playground. The Crosswater Hall clubhouse serves as a space for social and civic activities, community meetings and social functions, while the fitness center provides residents with modern cardio and strength-training equipment. The park’s design also includes a non-swimming lake with overlook views of the community’s nature preserves.

The Nocatee Splash Water Park is the focal point of Nocatee’s 75-acre Community Park, also planned and designed by ELM.
