Redmond Pool Update - February 2, 2021
The City is nearing completion of Phase 2 of the Redmond Pool project and is targeting opening the pool in February.
Flooring in the lobby and locker room has been completed. Contractors are currently working on the floor surfacing in the natatorium which will be completed in a few days. City staff will focus on installing the diving board, starting blocks, ADA lift, and acoustical panels in the natatorium, and installing interior signage over the next week. Once final inspections and site preparation are complete, we will provide access to WAVE Aquatics, our operational partner to move in and prepare for programming.

Redmond Pool Update- January, 2021
We are getting closer to completion! All Phase 1 work was completed in summer 2020, including new boilers, HVAC system, roof, windows, and a new pool liner. We continue to make progress in Phase 2. The lobby is almost complete, with new tile, light fixtures, windows, and the relocation of the customer service desk to expand the lobby area. Two new Family / All Gender rooms with a sink, toilet and shower are also nearing completion. The locker room tile, lockers, benches, and fixtures are installed.
The remaining work includes floor surfacing, interior signage installation, acoustical panels, new starting blocks, reinstallation of bleachers, and new lobby furniture. Final permitting approval from the Department of Health and building inspection is required before the pool is authorized to reopen. We will continue to keep you updated on the status of the project at redmond.gov/Pool and are working with our operating partner, Wave Aquatics, on an official reopening date. Check out the photos below!

Redmond Pool Update - 11/8/19
The Redmond Pool is currently in the first phase of essential improvements which include new mechanical and electrical systems, air handling units, boiler systems, roof and windows, and improved circulation. These improvements will result in better air and water quality, energy efficiencies and operational savings. Phase 2 includes locker room and lobby improvements, pool deck re-surfacing and ADA improvements.
Recently contractors discovered an existing but unknown condition. The substructure of the pool is compromised; there are areas where concrete has deteriorated leaving aggregate and rusting rebar behind. The damage extends sporadically from approximately 1’ to 5’ off the bottom of the pool’s deep end. This unexpected repair will take approximately 3 months to correct the substructure and complete the pool lining. To accommodate this unexpected delay the Redmond Pool will not open in November as previously scheduled and will remain closed to complete both Phase 1 and 2 and is expected to re-open in fall of 2020.
Redmond Pool Update - 10/24/19
While our contractor was demolishing the lining in the deep end of the pool, an existing but unknown condition was discovered. The substructure of the pool is compromised; there are areas where concrete has deteriorated leaving aggregate and rusting rebar behind. Anderson Poolworks investigated on Tuesday, 10/22/19 and found the damage extends sporadically from approximately 1’ to 5’ off of the bottom of the pool’s deep end.
The pool was scheduled to open in November after the first phase of work was completed but due to these new developments, we will calculate a new timeline for the pool when we have determined the scope of work for the structural engineers and Anderson Poolworks. We hope to have the new timeline available next week.
