Plex Pool Resurfacing Project

The Flynn Recreation Complex Pool was completely resurfaced in 2013 to make some much needed improvements to our natatorium, including:

  • Resurfaced pool bottom with new lane line tile markers
  • New tiled dept markers around the pool deck and dept markings on pool gutters
  • Freshly painted walls with hooks for towels, signs,  and new graphics
  • Upgraded HVAC system, including new air socks and improved exhausts
  • New lane lines
  • New backstroke flags
  • New ADA 5 step easy chair for improved access into the pool
  • We will also be installing a new battery operated ADA pool lift
  • Aesthetic upgrades to the diving board stands and meet platform
  • New gutters will be installed within the next two months
  • New starting platforms for the Varsity Swim team
