Built more than seventy years ago in the wake of the great depression, Swanson Pool was recently renovated. Opening Day May 31. To bring it into the 21st-century, Swanson Pool's architects and construction managers had to revert back to the 1939 dimensions of 50-meters. The shell of the pool -- also dating back to 1939 -- has been replaced and a second 1-meter diving board and additional drop-slide installed. A new filtration, gutter and piping system further beef up the infrastructure, and expanded green space provides a larger buffer between the deck area and parking lot. Locker rooms have been expanded and renovated to include a family restroom area conveniently located off the upper deck.
