Matt Dishman Pool and Spa

  • Spa will be replaced with a larger capacity spa

  • Spa mechanical systems will also be replaced

  • Matt Dishman Indoor Pool


Matt Dishman Indoor Pool and Spa has received 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 contributed $10,000.

The project included resurfacing the pool, which addressed hollow locations behind the plaster and cracks in the sub-surface of the pool floor. 

It also completely replaced the spa (which was 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 have been replaced, and a new ultra-violet filtering system has been added. The three existing fiberglass sand filters for the pool have also been replaced with one high-efficiency filter.

PROJECT UPDATE - October 12, 2016

We are excited to announce that construction is complete on the Parks Replacement Bond-funded improvements at Matt Dishman Community Center’s pool and spa, and we invite you and your family to come enjoy it!  Pool schedule here.
