While we hope our residents enjoy their Spring Break, staff at The Colony Aquatic Park will be pushing to coordinate multiple repair jobs on the Indoor Pool during that time. As a result, the facility is closed March 10-29.
"We apologize for any inconvenience this closure might cause to swim guests who rely on us for their workouts,” said Elise Knox, Aquatic Park Manager. “But I think everybody is going to love the fresh new look when they come back."
Starting at the top, old fiberglass skylights will be replaced and the building support beams cleaned and painted a fresh coat of deep blue. The brick walls will receive a lighter shade of dusty blue. New LED lights will be added to brighten the pool decks and water to improve safety. The biggest part of the repair job will be grinding and recoating the fiberglass pool walls and bottom. During that process, worn-out anchor cups are replaced so that safety lines and lane markers stay hooked into the walls during use.
Funding for the work is provided through the city's Capital Improvement Projects budget and the Community Development Corp.
