Community Outdoor Pool

Kids and adults swimming in Crawford Park Pool.

In November 2017, voters approved funding to build a new outdoor pool to replace the existing pool at Crawford Park. In 2018, the City began the design process for the pool, which included site analysis and selection. The site analysis assesses environmental conditions, potential impacts to existing programs and amenities, and other site-specific considerations. Based on this analysis and input from the City Council, Parks Board, and citizens, Virginia Weaver Park was selected as the location for the new pool.

Q&A

  • What are the plans for the existing pool space at Crawford? I've seen a suggestion that it be turned into a Skateboard area; that or something like it sounds like a good idea. There should be something to maintain a connection for our young folk to this beloved historic park, beyond the playground & soccer fields. Also, is there any plan to set a target date for the Indoor pool to be built in Cedar Hill? This idea has been around for at least 15 yrs, because I attended 2 different community mtgs discussing such a pool many years ago. I've really been surprised that it has not ALREADY become a reality!

    Thank you for your questions. The City will do a master planning process for Crawford park in 2020, where neighbors can help decide the future of that park. Keep a look out for public input opportunities for that project!

    An indoor pool is still included in the Parks system long-range plans, but because funding for that type of facility hasn't yet been identified, no target date has been set for an indoor pool.


  • When is the estimated completion date?

    Thank you for your question. Our goals is to have the new pool complete during the 2021 season. We will have a better idea of an estimated completion date once the pool has been designed and a contract is awarded for construction.

  • I thought there were plans to build an indoor pool at the recreation center?? What happened to that?

    This project was included in the 2017 bond election to replace the existing outdoor pool at Crawford Park, which is aging and near the end of its life.
