Helen P. Brown Natatorium

The Helen P. Brown Natatorium is a 43,000 square foot, state-of-the-art aquatic facility features a 50-meter by 25-yard main pool and an additional small therapy pool, a diving well, locker rooms and shower facilities. A large mezzanine gives spectators a bird’s eye view of the swimmers below. The national award-winning design of the facility was completed in 1996 and was part of the renovation of South Side High School. It was made possible by a bond levy supported by the Fort Wayne community. Located adjacent to South Side High School, the pool is used by all FWCS students, families and patrons, as well as the entire community.

The pool features both 1- and 3-meter diving boards. The depth of the pool ranges from 4 feet at the east end to 12.5 feet under the diving boards on the west end. The pool features 23 usable short course lap lanes or 8 long course lanes, along with a movable bulkhead. The Omega Timing system is used for competitions.
