–The City of Paso Robles has begun construction at Centennial Pool with plans to reopen the aquatic facility this June in time for the summer swim season. Additionally, construction at the city’s Municipal Pool facility is slated to begin Monday, Feb. 29 with a scheduled completion date of Friday, April 29. Summer employment opportunities are available with recreation services with recruitment underway for several seasonal positions.

Certified lifeguards and water safety instructors are needed for the 2016 aquatics season and are encouraged to apply by the Friday, March 4 deadline. Additionally, the city has an open position for an assistant pool manager with applications for this position due by Friday, Feb. 26. Applications and additional information for all aquatics positions can be found on the city’s website at lesssons at muni

Centennial Pool, which has been closed since 2011, will undergo needed repairs and be brought up to ADA code compliance in time for a June 2016 opening. Reopening Centennial Pool will allow the city to accommodate three times the number of swimmers into aquatics programs and at public swim times this summer. The pool is located in Centennial Park at 600 Nickerson Drive.

“The amenities at Centennial Pool create a wonderful aquatic playground for the Paso Robles community,” said Lynda Holt, recreation services manager for the city of Paso Robles. “The large slide, expansive shallow area and wading pool all contribute to a family friendly pool experience. We are thrilled that Centennial Pool will once again be a great place for families to cool off this summer.”

The outdoor pool, diving well and indoor therapy pool at the Municipal Pool located at 534 28th Street have been the city’s primary aquatics facility for the past five years. The pools and surrounding area of this facility will be brought up to ADA code compliance to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for the community. The Municipal Pool is scheduled to reopen on Tuesday, May 2.
