History of the Kenaston Swimming Pool
In 1964 the newly formed Kenaston Lion's Club (1961) proposed that a swimming pool be built in Kenaston. One of the primary advocates for a village pool was Pete George who offered the usage of the George dam for swimming lessons in 1963 and 1964.
The cost of the original pool was estimated at $18,000. The Lions Club raised $11,000 and along with government grants the project was completed. The first pool opened in 1965 and was well used by the community, becoming the summer hang-out of choice for many of the youth.
After twenty years of service, it became evident that a new and larger pool was needed due to ongoing leaks and water line issues; the cost was estimated at $180,000.? Again the Lions Club initiated the fund-raising; government grants along with donations from local business, Parks and Rec, community members and community organizations the funds were raised. The new and existing 25 by 10 meter pool was opened in 1986; amenities include a diving board and artificial turf in the seating area.
In 1991 the pool was improved with the addition of new changing rooms and a roof at the cost of $320,000. The main motivation for the roof was to protect the children on colds days and to increase their desire to take lessons. The roof allowed both children and adults to enjoy a longer pool season and has helped lessen some of the maintenance and cleaning requirements.
The Kenaston Swimming Pool is a wonderful asset to the community and currently offers activities for people of all ages including swimming lessons, aquacize and public swimming from June to late August.
From its inception the pool has given Kenaston families swimming skills; confidence and self-esteem when vacationing near water, and all the physical benefits that water activities provide. The board and staff encourage everyone to get involved in pool activities.
