Central Park’s Aquatic Surprise!

A groundbreaking ceremony took place on Wednesday afternoon, marking the beginning of construction for a brand new swimming pool in Central Park, Schenectady. The facility, which is slated to open next summer, will be free for everyone to enjoy and promises to be a fantastic addition to the park’s amenities.

The new swimming pool will cater to a variety of aquatic activities, including lap swimming for those seeking exercise, a splash pad for children and families to cool off in the hot summer months, and new bath houses for the convenience of all visitors. This project aims to promote healthy outdoor activities while enhancing the overall value of the city and its surrounding neighborhoods.

Mayor Gary McCarthy expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, “It’s healthy, outdoor activities that add value to the city as a whole, and our neighborhoods that are adjacent to the parks that have done these upgrades.” The new facility will be a testament to the city’s commitment to improving the quality of life for its residents.

The construction of the swimming pool is being funded through federal COVID relief funds, demonstrating the city’s dedication to allocating resources effectively in order to provide accessible recreational options to the community. As anticipation builds for the pool’s grand opening next summer, Schenectady residents can look forward to a refreshed and rejuvenated Central Park experience.
