Mingus Park Pool Maintenance Closure August 09, 2017
The Mingus Park Pool will be closed starting Monday, August 7 to allow for some needed capital improvements. Mingus Park Pool was first established in 1949 and was redone in 1998 through donations from Mrs. Vera Richter. The Mingus Park Pool Bath House was rebuilt in 1999 from general obligation bonds. Last year, the City completed phase one of some much-needed capital improvements which included replacement of plumbing infrastructure and tiles in the showers, changing areas, and bathrooms.
The City is ready to begin phase two of the project which includes replacement of the pool filtration system, surge tanks, and to resurface the Pool. The Pool is expected to reopen on October 15. The project is being financed in part by a grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department in the amount of $221,774.
