Grant Outdoor Pool Restoration Project

Project Overview

With funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, this project replaced outdated mechanical systems for the Grant Outdoor Pool.  The pool's mechanical systems dated to the 1920s and 1940s, and they needed replacement. 

Work included replacement of all mechanical systems, including plumbing, pumps, motors, pipes, strainer baskets, chemical controllers, sanitation systems, pool gutters, deck drains, and filters. The pool was also made more accessible by correcting cross slope issues on the deck and installation of two new pool lifts.
