A very special Vortex project was recently installed in Indiana: An ADA-accessible Elevations™ at Murphy Aquatic Park in Avon! With a zero-depth entry and wheelchair accessible decks, everyone can participate in the fun! There are also 48 water features, three water slides, and a toddler zone, to make sure this is an inclusive experience where everyone can come and play together! This project became a pillar for many others.
