Weeklong closure ahead for Southwest Pool, starting Tuesday

As you make your end-of-summer plans, here’s one more note about city aquatics facilities – Southwest Pool (2801 SW Thistle) is closing for a week, from next Tuesday (August 26th) through Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 1st). It’s a maintenance shutdown, but it is concurrent with the final full week of operation for Colman Pool on the shore at Lincoln Park, so you’ll have that as a city-run alternative while SW Pool is out of service. (As of Sept. 2nd, when Southwest Pool reopens, Colman will be closed except for one “post-season weekend” Sept. 6-7.)

    I always worry when they close for a week and they discover something that leads them to be closed longer.

    This closure is to allow for the gymnasium floor to be refinished. The fumes from the finish products are very strong. No one can be in the building while the floor off-gasses for a couple of days. The floor work should not affect any mechanical systems at the pool. We should open on time with a shiny newly finished gym floor.

    The Pool, Teen Life Center, Neighborhood Service Center and EuropaKids will all be closed Aug 26th-Sept 1st.

Sorry, comment time is over.
