Braving the threat of rain, the plaster guys were in town today to put the final touches on the pool. A crew from Texas spent the day feverishly spreading bright white plaster. The rains held off just long enough to allow the plaster to set. Tomorrow, we'll fill the pool with water and the pool itself will be done. Then we fire up the pumps and boilers and work out any kinks in the chemical feed and circulation systems.

This was the last major step to open the pool. It's all finishing touches from here on out. For those of you following the progress, we've held off publicizing the grand opening until we were sure, but I think its safe to say,

JUNE 26TH AT 12:30!!!

Saturdays festivities will include music, tours of the facility, and BBQ food provided by the Fern Ridge Kiwanis. Proceeds will go to providing low income scholarships for local kids to enroll in swim lessons. We will open the facility to the public FREE OF CHARGE all weekend long. Come check out the new facility and help us celebrate this great addition to our community!

I'll continue to post updates including the adopted fees and swimming lesson schedule. Also look for more details in the Summer Recreation Guide which will be available all over Veneta in the next couple weeks.

  1. I swam for 10 years and I had no idea all the work that went in to creating a pool. These pictures have given me a greater idea of what goes into putting a pool together. Swimmers everywhere thank you for knowing this unique skill!
