The Park District will be renovating and expanding the pool from four swim lanes (approximately 2,700 sq. ft.) to six competition swim lanes and two cool down lanes (approximately 5,600 sq. ft.) which will approximately double the capacity of the pool. Construction of the new pool and pool deck will also include new retaining walls, planting, irrigation, a new entry kiosk, fences/gates, and ADA parking.
The project will also include construction of a new public changing room building with restrooms and space for lifeguard and park operations. The existing mechanical building will be replaced with a new building that will house all of the pool’s mechanical equipment and chemical treatments, it will also include storage space for lifeguard training equipment.
Construction for this project will begin in February 2022 and will run through May of 2023. The new Roberts Pool facility is expected to be open to the public in Summer 2023.
