A New Pool Era Begins

Nazareth Borough officially opened its new, "state of the art" Pool at a ceremony held on Sunday, May 17, 2015. The elaborate ceremony included fireworks, a poolside dance, a "historic" first dip by Mayor Carl R. Strye Jr. and Councilman Brian F. Regn and free swimming for over 600 revelers who enjoyed the cooling waters and new features that the Pool offers. Government and business leaders, former Council members and local civic and community persons of notoriety were in attendance for the much anticipated "kickoff" event. Special honors went to the Nazareth Kiwanis Club whose donation of $42,000 paid for most of the water features which make the new Pool more entertaining than many of its counterparts.

The Rebuilding Process

The Grand Re-Opening was the culmination of a two year process which included the contributions of a citizen-led Pool Focus Group who canvassed residents for their opinions and preferences for a new facility and visited local pools for important input about how pools can be successful going forward. The Pool Focus Group also interviewed potential Pool Architects and Pool Builders before returning to Council with their findings. In early 2014, the Project was approved, the Pool Architect chosen and contractor bids were solicited. Low bids were approved in May 2014 and Council quickly gave its official "go-ahead". As with any project of this magnitude, the rebuilding was not without its problems. Ground was officially broken at a small ceremony on June 2, 2014 and following demolition of the original Pool, core samples were needed to recommend locating the deep end and diving well in the most agreeable location on site. Blasting was required to loosen some of limestone and shale found on the site bed before serious excavation could continue. Contractors were offered an October 31, 2014 completion incentive and three of the four Pool builders reached that milestone. Only the Aquatic Contractor needed a one month extension but failed to have the Pool cover ready and installed for the extended deadline. With the Pool filled and the filtration system operational, Borough Council celebrated that success but soon realized that without a pool cover, leaves and debris would clutter the Pool and cause other problems. By early March, the Pool had to be drained and the Pool walls cleaned and repainted before refilling took place. The Pennsylvania Department of Health inspected the Pool for its official Operating Permit on April 23, 2015 and the Pool passed with flying colors despite the discovery of at least three leaks which would see water levels dropping each night. Repairs, to get the Pool through its initial season, were made prior to the Grand Re-Opening and all was in readiness for the much anticipated May 17th event.

The New Facility

The new Pool was designed by Wade Associates in conjunction with Spillman Farmer Architecture of Bethlehem, PA. The original concept called for 8,600 square feet of water surface but the size was increased to over 11,000 square feet by adding two competition lanes following the receipt of bids which were lower than originally expected. Features include an eight lane competition area, a slide and segregated arrival area for patrons over 48" tall and a "duck slide" in the kiddie sector of the Pool. Several water features are included in the zero entry area which also has a handicapped entry ramp and guardrail. There are two (2) springboard style diving boards which feature a water entry into a 12.5 foot diving well. The Pool features several peninsula type walk areas which allow access to the Pool at many points of its perimeter and a warmup/exercise shallow area adjacent to the bathhouse. A new safety fencing system surrounds the Pool and the easily accessible refreshment stand. The refitted and remodeled Bathhouse offers new showers, changing areas, and regular and handicapped bathrooms. New shrubbery and landscaping add to the charm of the picturesque Pool setting in the same locale as the original 1937-1938 WPA Pool.
