It’s easy to get excited about the opening of The Dalles Swimming Pool this weekend. The renovation is a great example of what can be created when people work together. This exciting project has been a long time in the planning and came to fruition thanks to the dedication of some hardworking and determined locals. The occasion marks a milestone of achievement for this community.
Saturday’s grand opening begins at 1pm and lasts until 4pm. The pool will remain open until 6pm.
The newly completed upmarket facility is a user-friendly pool that has been designed to provide the best of facilities –the latest pool technology and easy accessibility for users. The eight lane, 50 meter pool has something for everyone with a 140 foot water slide, diving board and an aquatic climbing wall. There is a 1,800 foot splash park on the grounds that will be free and open to the public.
There are new, expanded locker rooms, with additional showers added outdoors. The Parks and Recreation offices will be on the second floor of the building.
This is a huge asset for The Dalles area and will be a great gathering place for friends and family alike.
Well done to our community and this wonderful group of volunteers and supporters. We look forward to making the most of this great facility.
