SRC Pool and Spa Will Be Closed Beginning December 9, 2019 For Renovation and Maintenance Projects  

We appreciate your patience as we continue to make updates to our facilities that help us strive for more efficiency in sustainability and improve the customer experience.

August 2019, new high efficiency LED lights were retrofitted in the SRC Pool and Spa that has increased light quality, decreased operation costs, and reduced negative environmental impacts. 

Beginning December 9, 2019, the SRC Pool will be renovated with a new pool liner and the SRC Pool and Spa will be updated with a new perimeter gutter grate system.

The new pool liner and perimeter gutter grate system will add value to our facility in numerous ways;

  • Improve public safety through non-porous anti-microbial formulation and slip-resistant surface textures resulting in more hygienic and safer conditions for our patrons.
  • Operational costs will be reduced by ensuring a watertight shell and making it easier to maintain water chemistry.
  • Improved aesthetics and comfort with uniform color, comfortable surface underfoot, and new black pool markings (racing lines, targets, and marking strips).

While the project will begin on December 9, 2019, we hope the pool and spa will be ready to reopen on Thursday, January 2.  In the meantime, we will offer limited lap swimming at Gibb and Smith Pool from Monday, December 9 through Friday, December 20 with the location, dates, and times listed below. Kickboards, pull buoys, and a towel service will be provided.
