Peninsula Park Outdoor Pool

  • Peninsula Pool - 1935

  • Peninsula Pool - today

Project Update

Parks staff gave a presentation at the Piedmont Neighborhood Association General Meeting on October 26, 2017.

Project Overview

Thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, Peninsula Outdoor Pool will be receiving improvements including: 

  • Construction of new deck-level gutters
  • Replacement of the drainage and circulation systems
  • Replacement of the sand filtration system with a high-efficiency filtration system
  • New pumps
  • New building on the pool deck to house the pool mechanical systems
  • Replacement of the ramp and pool deck to comply with ADA standards
  • Addition of a new ADA lift
  • Addition of a UV sanitation system
  • Full sealing and painting of the pool shell

And, potentially: a change in the shape of the pool from rounded corners to square corners to increase capacity.

Work will be completed in time for the Summer 2019 season!
