Over the years, Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) has shared updates about the 93-year-old building approaching the end of its useful life. In May 2021, PP&R had an independent structural engineer inspect the building to ensure it was safe for summer programming. During that site visit, it was determined that further examination of the structure's roof was needed.
On June 15, 2021, the structural engineer inspected the roof’s exterior and recommended further exploration of the roof's interior. Due to the property's unique design that includes a domed roof, it is necessary to drain the pool and erect scaffolding to inspect the roof's interior. This process will take eight to ten weeks.
