Redmond Pool reopens after improvement projects

The contruction projects replaced out-dated mechanical elements and upgraded the pool amenities.

The Redmond Pool at 17535 NE 104th St has reopened after a two phase improvement project that began in June of 2019.

The pool was originally built by King County in 1972. The city says the first phase of construction was aimed at replacing and upgrading mechanical systems, air handling units, boiler system, electrical, roof and windows and improving pool circulation.

Crews also repaired the concrete substructure of the pool, which was discovered to be compromised in October 2019.

Phase 1 was completed in 2020, and Phase 2 was completed in April of 2020. Phase 2 improvements include new pool decking, lobby and locker room upgrades, and Americans with Disabilities Act improvements.

The Redmond Pool Improvement project was identified in the Facilities Strategic Management Plan that was adopted by City Council in January 2019. The City Council adopted the 2019-2025 Capital Improvement Program as part of the 2019-2020 overall budget. T

The purpose of the renovation is to improve essential and high priority systems and make structural improvements to allow the pool to operate an additional 25-30 years as a vital community space, according to the city.
