The City of Aiken Smith-Hazel Recreation Center outdoor pool will be completely renovated for the 2020 season. This will require the pool to be closed for the 2019 season. Though early in the planning process, work is expected to begin over the summer months.

The existing outdoor pool and pool house at the Smith-Hazel Center is over 29 years old and has served our community well. The entire facility will be renovated and includes the pool mechanics, the deck area, pool tiles, mechanical room, and bathhouse. Funding will come from the fourth round of Capital Project Sales Tax (CPST4) allocations approved by the voters in 2018.

The City will soon be accepting Request for Proposals to assist with the design and construction process. Once conceptual designs are received, public input meetings will be held to ensure the pool redesign features amenities wanted by the community.

We apologize for the inconvenience of closing this season, but look forward to opening a brand new facility in 2020!
