Demolition and Reconstruction of Henderson Pool Underway

 
 

LETHBRIDGE:  Work to replace the Henderson Outdoor Pool basin has begun, with demolition expected to be complete by the end of March.

 

City Council decided last August to move the project up instead of leaving it until 2015-2016, because of concern the pool's deteriorating basin won't be able to hold water this swimming season. At that time, Councillor Ryan Parker stated, "We've kind of had a continual problem at that pool in regards to ongoing maintenance and we had to delay the pool opening just this year (2013) by eight days because of continual leakage and as the summer progressed we've noticed that the leakage has gotten worse - it's hard actually to keep that pool full at all times, so instead of waiting two years, we're going to start doing construction in 2014."

 

While it's anticipated the pool will only be closed for a year, in March of last year, Director of Community Services Bary Beck cautioned that they will be working in an area that used to be an old slew, so he doesn't know what they will find once the basin is removed.

 

The $6.5 Million project to refurbish the 49-year old pool includes upgrading the mechanical systems and the addition of new amenities such as spray toys, slides and a tot area.
