Sunset Pool Scheduled to Open June 15; Union Reservoir Open for Memorial Day Weekend
MAY 27, 2011 -
Sunset Pool is scheduled to open on Wednesday, June 15. However, bathhouse construction will be ongoing through July with access to both the women's and men's locker rooms only. A temporary entry office will be located at the south end of the parking lot in a modular trailer.
The major delays are the result of having to redesign certain elements of the roof after construction was underway. The primary focus at this time is to get the locker rooms open to the public for the summer season while work is completed on the remainder of the facility. "We are excited about our upcoming summer swimming season and the new amenities that will be available at the Sunset bathhouse," Director of Community Services Karen Roney said. "We thank the public for their patience and understanding."
To register for Sunset Pool swim lessons throughout the summer, please call Centennial Pool at 303-651-8406.
In the meantime, Union Reservoir swim beach will be open for your holiday weekend. Come on out to the reservoir and enjoy a summer swim along with a summer hot-dog as we open our new concession stand. Union Reservoir will be open daily from 6 am until 9 pm, while the swim beach will be open from 10 am until 6 pm, Friday through Monday.
City recreation facilities will operate on a holiday schedule. The Recreation Center is open from 10 am to 4 pm on Memorial Day. The Memorial Building and Centennial Pool are closed. Centennial Pool also will be closed Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5, for Triathlon Weekend. Kanemoto and Roosevelt Activity Pools will open for the season at 10 am on Friday, June 3.
