Former pool site taking on new look PDF Print E-mail
If you take a drive or walk west on 6th or 7th Sts. these days, you might not know where you are. Work has been progressing rapidly on the demolition of the old Imperial swimming pool in Campbell Park, transforming that former recreational spot into a whole new, open look. Above, looking north from 6th Street, Koellner Enterprises equipment was taking out some of the last pieces of concrete and pool base on Tuesday afternoon. All of the pool structure, its bathhouse, restrooms and much of the sidewalk has been removed. The site will be leveled, and city park board members are reviewing suggestions on what should be placed there later on. City residents were also asked their ideas for that site in the recently-completed Community Attitude Survey, the results of which are now being compiled by Economic Development Director Leslie Carlholm. Local residents will be enjoying a new pool complex on East 9th Street this summer, which replaces the 70-year-old structure. (Republican photo)
