Congress Park Pool was selected to be a project on the Elevate Denver Bond list, which was approved by voters in 2017. This pool is one of the city's oldest and has grown increasingly costly to maintain, requiring extensive upgrades. The Congress Park Pool will be open during summer 2019 with construction beginning 2020.
The closure of Congress Park Pool in 2020 will result in new pool and facility to serve the community starting in 2021. Built in 1955, Congress Park Pool is one of Denver's oldest outdoor pools, and after 63 years of operation it has also become one of the city's most costly pools to maintain. In recent years, Congress Park Pool has seen multiple opening delays due to major leaks.
Thanks to the Elevate Denver bond, this project is fully funded, and the city can begin the process of building a state-of-the-art, public swimming pool. This project is one of the first bond projects to be launched. While bond projects will continue to roll out over the next 10 years with several fund issuances, work for Congress Park Pool was identified as a priority to start in the first year.
During the closure, there are many other indoor and outdoor public pools open to help keep you physically fit and cool during the summer. The closest outdoor pools to the Congress Park neighborhood are Mestizo-Curtis Pool and La Alma Pool. Find the full list of pools at denvergov.org/recreation.
