Mayor Michael B. Hancock, city officials, project partners and the community celebrated the completion of the new Congress Park Pool. The $10.1M project was funded by the Elevate Denver Bond program, approve by voters in 2017, for the design and construction of a new regional park pool facility to replace the outdated outdoor pool. 

One of Denver's oldest outdoor pools, Congress Park Pool was built in 1955, and was one of the city's most costly pools to maintain and required significant repairs each season. The new state-of-the -art pool was constructed to accommodate the growing population and recreational trends, as well as meet modern maintenance standards. The design process included community input to ensure the Congress Park Pool remains a special and valued asset for the neighborhood.
