The City of Piedmont and the Piedmont Recreational Facilities Organization (PRFO) invite community members to a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Piedmont Community Pool at 11am on Saturday, December 17th.
The event, which will take place on the pool site at 777 Magnolia Avenue, will celebrate the City Council’s recent award of contract and the imminent start of construction for Piedmont’s long-awaited new aquatics facility. Construction of the new pool is expected to begin in early 2023, and the new pool could open as soon as summer 2024.
Attendees will have an opportunity to stroll through the old pool one last time before it is demolished. City officials and PRFO leaders will be joined by pool users young and old to thank the many volunteers, community advocates, and generous donors who have worked tirelessly over the years to make this project a reality. Olympic swimmer Dana Vollmer will be on hand for greetings and photos – try on one of her five gold medals! Light refreshments will be served.
