In November 2012, Portland voters approved a $482 million Portland Public Schools (PPS) School Improvement Bond. Buckman Elementary School, as a part of the approved bond program, will be undergoing a large roof replacement/seismic bracing project during the summer of 2015. Due to the magnitude of the project, Buckman Elementary School and Buckman Pool will be CLOSED beginning June 12, 2015, and will reopen on September 8, 2015. Please visit the PPS School Improvement Bond webpage for more information.
Portland Parks & Recreation Aquatics, as always, will continue to offer other swimming opportunities, programming, and special events at the 12 pools found throughout the city.
