Centennial Pool reopens Monday, June 13
Full aquatics schedule and pool parties available this summer
–The City of Paso Robles Centennial Pool will open for the first time in five years on Monday, June 13. The community is invited to attend the grand reopening ceremony at the pool at 12.30 p.m. on that day. Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the pool gates will be open to swimmers from 1 p.m.
Centennial Pool will have a full aquatics schedule this summer including swimming lessons, community swim times and pool parties. Two-week swim lesson sessions will be held between June 20 and Aug. 12, 2016.
Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin said the re-opening of Centennial Pool is the result of the work of many. “This long-awaited event demonstrates again the ‘can-do’ attitude of the people of Paso Robles,” he said. “We are more than a match for any challenge we face together.”
Martin and Paso Robles City Councilman Steve Gregory rallied community support for the Centennial Pool reopening earlier this year by raising $75,000 at the Everyone In the Pool fundraiser held Saturday, Apr. 30 at Centennial Park.
The Centennial Pool has undergone construction over the last several months with necessary upgrades, deferred maintenance and accessibility standards addressed.
Both Centennial Pool, 600 Nickerson Drive, and Municipal Pool, 534 28th Street, will be open Monday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. June 13 through Aug. 20. The daily swim rate is $5 with a 10 punch pass available for $45.
