On July 3rd, the City of London, Ontario celebrated the grand re-opening of the brand new Byron Community Pool with sunshine and at-capacity crowds.
After a 49-year life cycle, Byron ’s community outdoor pool closed its doors to the public for a well deserved, $2.8-million facelift. Acapulco Pools was selected by Accuratus Design & Build Inc. to complete the removal of the existing pool tank, the pool tank replacement along with improved accessibility features, mechanical upgrades and the addition of spray features.
Designed by Architects Tillmann Ruth Robinson (ATRR) and Aqua Plans Aquatic Consultants Inc., the existing components were replaced with a new modern bathhouse with universal change rooms, a heated 25M swimming pool, an improved mechanical system and a new pool deck complete with ample shade structures. It is the first London facility to install an on-deck climbing wall.
Bringing a new element of fun and excitment to the community, swimmers can enjoy a variety of spray features and with zero depth beach entry, the swimming area is fully accessible.
