Centennial Pool fundraiser needs local support
Tickets for upcoming fundraiser available at the chamber of commerce
–In 2008, the recession forced the city to close Centennial Pool to save costs, and it has been closed since. In 2015, the Paso Robles City Council directed city staff to find a way to re-open the pool for the 2016 swim season. They voted to spend more than $500,000 to bring the facility into compliance with current ADA requirements and other repairs.
“The Paso Robles community came together with our ‘can do’ attitude and collected the funding to build our family oriented Centennial Park in the mid-1980s” says City Councilman Steve Gregory. “Today, our dream is alive again…Once again the spirit of Paso Robles’ ‘can do’ attitude is back and the city’s doers and dreamers have the opportunity to help make the re-opening of Centennial Pool a great success for our children and swimmers.”
On Saturday, April 30, the city’s first Mayor’s Fundraiser event will be staged at Centennial Park to help offset the costs of reopening the pool. “Everyone in the Pool” is a friendly and fun island themed evening event with food, beverages, entertainment and silent auctions. Everyone will have the opportunity to contribute to the pool fund, from the most modest individual donation to the larger corporate sponsors. Major sponsors will be commemorated with special “lifesaver” signage that will remain on display every summer. Tickets are available for purchase at the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce or by clicking the link below.
