GLENSIDE POOL OPENING DELAYED TO JUNE 29, 2016
During a final inspection with the pool contractor and consultant on June 23, it was determined that the material applied to Glenside Pool will need additional curing time before it can be filled.
As a result of this unforeseen circumstance, the pool at Glenside will open on Wednesday, June 29 at noon. To make up for the delayed opening, Glenside Pool hours will be extended until 9:00 p.m. every evening until July 31.
Pool members who regularly patronize Glenside Pool may use Conklin Pool at any time throughout the season, since membership is good for both pools. Conklin Pool is located at 15 E. Church Road (across from Yew Road) in Elkins Park.
Both Conklin and Glenside swim teams will continue to practice at Conklin Pool until Glenside Pool is open; the Conklin team will practice from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., followed by the Glenside team from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The first three-week session of swim lessons at Glenside Pool has been reduced to a two-week session running July 5 through July 15. The cost of the session will be prorated.
Glenside Pool was scheduled for water blasting and repainting work this year, a project that occurs approximately every 8 to 10 years. Once the paint and plaster layers were removed from the pool shell, pool professionals determined that a procedure different than originally planned would be required, due to the age and condition of the pool. New materials were recommended to help the Township bridge the gap until an extensive renovation can be completed.
The Township will be begin working on a feasibility study this fall to further assess the conditions, operation and maintenance for both Glenside and Conklin Pools. This will help the Township develop a plan to update and/or replace its aging pools, which are both nearing 50 years old. Look for information about public participation in the feasibility study process this fall.
