FEB 25th

The Pool Company is back on the site installing hand railings and other fixtures in preperation for the pouring of the surrounding concrete next week. The building is going up fast! We should start seeing wood and other materials on the site very soon. Below is a close up of the brick. Once a sealer is applied, it should look pretty cool, or at least less "institutional". If you haven't been to the park lately, check it out, its a big change. We're starting into the process of programming pool activities and hiring of life guards and a pool manager in anticipation that we'll be open for business in June. That's still our goal.

Fast Progress

The site is really starting to take shape both on the pool side and the building. The construction crews have run into a few minor hickups, delays in getting materials, problems with prefabricated shower stalls, bathroom fixture issues, but it still looks like we're on track to wrap up construction by June. If you haven't been to the site recently, swing by the park and check it out. You'll be impressed.

Feb 4: Getting down to details

The building is starting to take shape now that the block is going up. We're spending time going over details with the contractors. Things like window flashing, light switch heights and other finishing touches are being worked out. No major issues so far.

Another Reason Why We Need A Pool


The built environment within communities influences access to physical activity opportunities and access to affordable and healthy foods. For example, a lack of sidewalks, safe bike paths, and parks in neighborhoods can discourage children from walking or biking to school as well as from participating in physical activity.

Obesity is the the #1 leading cause of preventable death in the US.
