YMCA Shares Plans for Renovated Pool

Published 11.24.17

 

We are excited to share with members the official plans for our newly renovated pool. While it is hard to temporarily close our 4-Lane Pool, the renovation will bring several new features to our pool. Plans show a zero-entry swimming pool with splash features, a basketball goal and volleyball net for children and families to enjoy. The pool will also feature an underwater bench to be used during swim lessons.

“This pool was built back in 1965, and is long overdue for an upgrade. It is not only time to bring this pool to meet today’s standards, but also add some new elements to better accommodate our community’s current needs which- includes aquatic space for families,” explains Dick Jones, President & CEO. “This new pool will allow us to continue to offer water aerobics and swim lessons but also provide a recreational gathering space for young families.”

New Features Include:
  • Zero-Entry Access: Similar to a beach entry, our new pool will have an entryway that will gradually slope from the deck into the water. This type of entry assists older people, young children and those with physical disabilities.

  • Splash Features: Our new pool will have a number of different low and high spray features and play area to help young children become better acclimated to the water.
  • Underwater Bench: A new underwater bench will be built along side of the more shallow area in the pool, and can be used for swim lessons or other aquatics classes.
  • ADA Compliant Lift: to provide easy access for those with limited mobility on dry land.
  • Basketball Hoop & Volleyball Net: The new pool will include a removable basketball hoop and volleyball net for recreational use.
