Work Begins at McDonald Park Pool

Kamloops, BC - Following a decision made at the City Council meeting on April 5th, and revisited again at the April 12th Council meeting, demolition/construction is beginning at McDonald Park Pool.

Council decided to close McDonald Park Pool due to extensive required repairs, and to replace it with a new community park including a spray area and wading pool. The new facility is slated to open early this summer in the McDonald Park location.

Starting today, heavy equipment will be on site to start demolition of the pool. Filling and levelling the pool as soon as possible is required to mitigate liability issues.

The City reminds residents that the area is a construction zone and that it is restricted access for safety reasons. Security will be on site 24/7. The City appreciates your cooperation.
