Matt Dishman Indoor Pool and Spa will be receiving major repairs and renovation thanks to the Parks Replacement Bond. Due to a small part of this project (spa expansion) being eligible for System Development Charge (SDC) funding, the Parks SDC Fund is contributing $10,000.
The project includes resurfacing the pool, which will address hollow locations behind the plaster and cracks in the sub-surface of the pool floor.
It will also completely replace the spa (which is currently leaking 1,000 gallons of water per day) with a larger capacity spa that can hold up to 20 users. The spa’s mechanical systems including piping, filters, chemical controllers, and chlorine systems will be replaced, and a new ultra-violet filtering system will be added. The three existing fiberglass sand filters for the pool will also be replaced with one high-efficiency filter.
The work will begin during Matt Dishman Community Center’s annual maintenance shutdown for two weeks in mid-August. The pool will remain closed an additional 6 weeks after the Community Center re-opens to complete the work, with an expected pool re-opening in mid-October. We look forward to celebrating the re-opening of the pool and the improved spa this fall!
During the closure of this pool, PP&R has seven outdoor pools and six indoor pools for use at other locations. Find the closest option with our Park Finder tool.
