Newly Renovated Public Pool Opens

Friday, June 19, 2020

A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place for the City of Aiken Public Pool’s newly renovated facility.

The Aiken City Council, Recreation Commission, and City of Aiken staff attended the event.

Replacing the formerly outdated pool and bathhouse at Smith-Hazel Park has been in the works since the Capital Project Sales Tax voter referendum in 2018. The $1.25 million project was funded through the CPST IV budget.

While closed during the summer of 2019, the construction included removing the existing pool facilities and installing a brand-new pool and bathhouse. The new pool design has 3,436 square feet of water surface, with highlights including zero depth entry and water features such as slides and spray jets.

“Swimming pools offer a means of social interaction and relaxation, along with the opportunity for exercise and swim instruction. We hope this pool will contribute to the health and happiness of our community for years to come,” stated Parks, Recreation & Tourism Director Jessica Campbell.

The City of Aiken Public Pool is located outdoors at 416 Kershaw Street, NE.
