People's Pool Grand Opening

Sep 24, 12:30pm

Peoples Community Center

9/23/16 Update: Obe Quarless and Caribbean Connection will play live music during the open house. 9/22/16 Update: We are extending the public swim sessions to an hour each instead of half an hour. You'll need to pick up a free ticket from the center's front desk during the event: Red ticket: 2:30 to 3:30 Blue ticket: 3:30 to 4:30 Yellow ticket: 4:30 to 5:30 If we run out of tickets, we'll add more sessions so everyone who wants to swim has a chance. Get ready to dip your toes in Tacoma’s newest public, indoor swimming pool at People’s Community Center, 1602 Martin Luther King Jr. Way. **Open house begins at 12:30 pm **Ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 pm **Mural dedication at 2 pm **Swimming starts at 2:30 pm (pool capacity is limited, so we'll offer free, hourlong sessions) Admission is free to everyone, regardless of whether you want to test the sparkling, 85-degree water or simply tour the renovated center. This major building project began more than a year ago as a collaboration between Metro Parks Tacoma, which manages the center, and the City of Tacoma, which owns the building and led construction. The desire for a pool serving the Hilltop and central Tacoma is a longstanding one, dating back to before the construction of the previous pool. It shut down in 2008 because of structural problems, and officials considered turning the space into a gym. But community members lobbied hard for a new pool. Construction came about with the support of the City of Tacoma, Metro Parks and state taxpayers through the state Department of Commerce. The grand opening is not just an opportunity for first-hand inspection of the pool and center. It’s also a chance to meet Metro Parks and People’s Center staff members, learn about planned People’s Center programs and share your ideas for the future of the center and pool. The pool features stair-step access to a shallow swimming area and submerged bench, perfect for introductory swimming lessons. The entire pool is relatively shallow, making it enjoyable even for nonswimmers. Metro Parks plans a regular schedule of lessons, water exercise, lap-lane and recreational swimming opportunities. The pool will be open daily. Key pool elements include: • A spraypad especially for toddlers • A current channel and vortex, designed for both fun and therapy • Floating pads for walk-on-water play • Two, poolside basketball hoops • Two party rooms. The walk-on-water feature is similar to those at popular water parks. Floating pads are shaped and colored to look like lily pads and log slices, and are anchored beneath a cargo net, which stretches from one side of the pool to the other. The trick is to use the cargo net for balance as you walk across the pool. The side-by-side basketball hoops are ready for half-court, 3-on-3 basketball games. The current channel is a smaller version of the lazy river at Metro Parks’ Stewart Heights pool, minus the floating tubes. The high-velocity vortex and current also can be used for physical or occupational therapy. The pool meets all Americans with Disabilities Act standards. It’s equipped with a poolside lift and a set of closely spaced, parallel railings to ease entry and exit via stairs. Learn more at www.MetroParksTacoma.org/peoples
