Swimming Pool (Truxtun Park)

Truxtun Park Swim Center 2020 Design Concept

The existing pool will be demolished in September 2019. Construction of the new pool should be completed next spring for the pool to open (tentatively) in May 2020.

The new pool facilities will be in the same location as the existing pool and will include a new bathhouse, a competitive 25-meter, six-lane lap pool, a family leisure pool, a splash pad, snack bar and ample shaded patio areas. The design allows for the future placement of an air structure to enclose the lap pool for year-round operations. The pool design/build team is led by Lothorian Pools and includes Campion Hruby Landscape Architects and Charles P. Johnson and Associates (civil engineering.)
