Presenting a Blueprint for the New and Improved Granada Hills Pool
Posted by Councilmember Englander on December 08, 2017 at 4:05 PM
This week, I invited the Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering to present plans for the renovation of the Granada Hills Pool. In recent years, the pool's age has caused more severe and frequent leaks which caused it to close during the recent summer swim season. The Department of Recreation and Parks was able to patch the pool this last summer to ensure that it will be able to open for the 2018 Summer season.
However, this patching is only a short term solution. In August of last year, I directed funds to the Bureau of Engineering to develop design and plans for an upgrade of the facility. The plans should be finalized by early Spring of next year with construction expected to begin after the summer swim season in Fall. Construction will continue through 2019 with the new facility opening to the public in time for the 2020 swim season.
The new design represents some major improvements for the facility. The pool's size will be increased to 25 yards to meet regulation short course length used for high school and NCAA competitions. There will be new security features including underwater lights. The facility will also be brought into ADA compliance and include a new splash pad.
I want to thank the partners at L.A.'s Bureau of Engineering for coordinating the development of these plans and to the community members who have shown patience throughout this process. I'm looking forward to the day when the whole community can enjoy the reopened facility.
