Palm Ridge Aquatics Center users will want to make note of an upcoming maintenance closure.
The center will close for about eight weeks beginning Friday, June 1, as crews begin replacing the indoor pool trench drain and resurfacing the deck. As always, the Rec Centers’ primary concern is resident safety. Availability to non-construction areas of the center will be allowed as much as feasible. However, residents are advised to use caution in the area and heed all safety signs and closures.
In the initial phase of the project, the current drain – which is cracking, not draining properly and creating a safety hazard – will be removed from the perimeter of the pool and spa area. This involves cutting into concrete that holds the drain in place. Due to the complexity of this task and the equipment and dust involved, the outdoor pool, walking track, and fitness center also will be closed.
The second phase of the project will begin July 1, and incorporates heavy construction activities, including pouring concrete and providing a new decorative deck surface.
Staff will reopen the walking track as the project progresses and construction is limited to the interior of the pool site, making it safe for residents to enter the track area.
Pickleball users will be diverted to an alternate entrance to the courts when required by construction activities. No vehicle traffic or cart parking will be allowed in or along the roundabout driveaway during this project. Parking lots will not be affected.
The Rec Centers appreciates members’ patience during this important maintenance project.
