Update on Balboa Park Pool

Hoodline published this update on the state of the still-unfinished Balboa Park Pool:

“Nearly a year after planned reopening, Balboa Park Pool remains shuttered”

“We determined that it was better to invest in a new, higher-performing and fully warrantied window system,”  Tamara Aparton [of SF Rec & Parks] explained, noting that the delays experienced due to the window replacement were concurrent to the utility delays. We are making good progress on other aspects of the work on the interior and exterior,” she added. According to updates posted on the pool’s website, a mural by Jason Jägel was completed inside the building in June.
