The Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department is planning major upgrades to its four pools and two spraygrounds and is seeking public input.
The current plans being considered by Parks and Recreation can be found here: Let’s Plan2Splash August 2022
The improvements being considered outlined in the aquatics master plan are fairly extensive. Those who wish to comment can take the online survey or give their feedback in person at one of the community events or one of the three feedback stations.
The three events are:
- Saturday, Aug. 20 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Renaissance Shops Back to School Event at 2521 Phillips Ave.
- Saturday, Aug. 27 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Warnersville Back to School Event at 601 Doak St.
- Friday, Sept. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. at First Friday at LeBauer Park at 208 Davie St.
People may also visit the feedback stations at McGirt-Horton Library, Warnersville Recreation Center or Lindley Recreation Center anytime they are open from Saturday, Aug. 20 to Sunday, Sept. 18.
The aquatics master plan includes renovating Lindley Pool and bathhouse, adding an inclusive playground, waterslide and beach entry.
Peeler Pool is to be modernized with an updated pool, sprayground, a combination pool and sprayground or other facilities based on community feedback.
Warnersville Pool is to be renovated along with the bathrooms. A new playground, field, beach entry, waterslide, Ninja cross system and an obstacle course are to be added.
Smith Community Pool and Keeley and Barber Park Spraygrounds are to be enhanced with site improvements like additional seating, landscaping, misting stations and more.
The aquatics master plan represents the first step in what will likely entail years of fundraising, additional planning, development and construction.
Windsor Pool is not included in the plans since it is already due to be replaced as part of the Windsor Chavis Nocho Community Complex.
I went to GSO public pools when I was a child. Today, you wouldn’t catch me there with any of my children or grandchildren. Lakes & streams? They are all polluted. Parts of the ocean on the Atlantic seaboard are polluted.
Are we blindly giving these tasks to Samet Construction? You know them, the same group that has taken a full year longer than anticipated to redo the City Lake Pool at Jamestown.
When you hire the cheapest bidder, that’s what you get.
