Peninsula Park Outdoor Pool

  • Peninsula Pool - 1935

  • Peninsula Pool - today

Project Update

Construction will begin in September 2018, after the pool closes for the summer season. We currently anticipate that construction will be completed in summer 2019.

Peninsula Park Community Center and Peninsula Park will stay open during construction. The sidewalk, parking spaces, and bike lane to the north of the community center building will be closed during construction. Parks users and neighbors can expect typical construction noise and activity, especially at the start of the project which will involve demolition work to remove the decking, pool shell, and other parts. 

Project Overview

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

  • Addition of pool and deck lighting to allow longer hours of operation
  • Increased shallow area and squared-off pool corners to accommodate more swimmers
  • 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
  • New paint on pool shell

Work will start in September 2018 after the end of the summer 2018 season, and we anticipate it will be completed in summer 2019.
