The $4.1 million project provides residents with a state-of-the-art facility, which includes a recreational pool with kid-friendly play structures and a body slide, as well as an eight-lane short course yard pool for hosting swim meets.
This new addition to the Galveston Parks System will give the City the ability to provide fitness classes and swimming lessons. It will also provide the opportunity to offer community safety courses, such as first aid, CPR and lifeguard training. Funding for the project is being provided by the Industrial Development Corporation, Better Parks for Galveston, a grant from Texas Parks & Wildlife, the Neighborhood Revitalization Fund and numerous foundation grants and private donations.
“This community swimming pool shows the tenacity of the people of Galveston. They set a goal that had never been accomplished before and saw it through to completion as a team,” said Mayor James D. Yarbrough. “This facility will bring joy to Galveston families for years to come.”
Hours of operation beginning Thursday, September 7, 2017 through October 9, 2017:
A fall schedule for the lap pool hours of operation will be released in the near future.
