Today, Nick and Parks Director Adena Long cut the ribbon on the newly-renovated Peninsula Park Outdoor Pool.
The event included a synchronized swimming performance by the Rose City Raindrops, water safety activities with Parks lifeguards, and cake for kids.
The improvements include expanding the shallow end to better accommodate swim lessons and play, improved ADA accessibility, and new filters and pump systems.
The project was funded by the 2014 Parks Replacement Bond and System Development Charges (SDCs) paid by developers.
Located in north Portland, the Peninsula Park Community Center was the first community center in the Portland Parks system, established in 1913.
