CITY HALL — Parks officials on Tuesday presented four options for replacing swimming pools at Verdugo and McCambridge parks totaling some $16 million as the City Council explores an expanded aquatics season.
Options for Verdugo range from $7.33 million to $6.1 million, with an additional $3.7-million option to permanently or temporarily enclose a portion of the facility. Option A calls for a 50-meter swimming pool, 2,800-square-foot activity pool and complete remodel of the existing bathhouse building. Option B includes a 25-meter lap pool and 3,300-square-foot activity pool, said Nachi Madhavan, of Jones & Madhavan Architecture Engineering.
“The main difference is you are losing the long course,” Madhavan said. “What you’re losing is the ability for an outside group, like a master’s swim group, which the city doesn’t have right now.”
