Ford Pool construction is continuing to progress and the overall project is on track to be substantially complete in October.
The latest construction updates include:
• A plaza entry sign “banner” has been constructed on top of four, nine-foot concrete columns.
• The concrete pool deck’s formwork is in place, and the deck is anticipated to be completed by October.
• Upon completion of the pool’s decking, other structures, such as picnic shelters and a cabana, will be erected.
• Roof installation and interior work will begin this month on the pool house (which includes a bathhouse and offices), and the chemical storage and pump buildings.
Other aspects of the Ford Pool project include competitive lap lanes, a zero-depth entry and fun water play structures.
Updates to Food Pool and the surrounding amenities began in December 2015, after nearly 30 years of use. Despite rain and inclement weather that has impacted construction, Ford Pool will be open for the summer 2017 season.
