CLOSED FOR THE 2020 SEASON
The City of Logan announces the closure of the Logan Aquatic Center for the 2020 season in order to take care of long-needed capital improvements, many of which can only be done during warm weather. Next year will be the pool’s 20th anniversary season, and we look forward to a grand reopening slated for Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, 2021.
During the closure, the City will perform repairs and improvements including deck and gutter repairs, plumbing and pump replacements, chlorination and filtration upgrades, and structural improvements to the diving stands. Generally, contractor availability is in short supply in the spring when most pool operators are preparing to open and post swim-season repairs are limited in the fall due to shorter days and cooler temperatures.
According to Russ Akina, Director of Parks & Recreation, “Due to uncertainty surrounding coronavirus and the resulting guidelines* which only allows pools to operate at 50% capacity, this seems like an excellent time to get these big projects done, which you can’t accomplish when the pool is open.”
The Logan Aquatic Center was built in 2001 and opened to the public on Memorial Day that year. The 2.5-acre pool facility consists of a 50-meter pool and diving well with low and high diving boards, an accessible leisure pool with two water features, and a 40-foot-tall slide tower with two water slides and splash pool, showers, locker rooms, restrooms, concession space, and staff offices. The facility serves an average of 113,939 patrons each season offering lap swim, water fitness classes, swim lessons, public swim, adaptive aquatics, and group reservations.
