At 84 degrees, the crystal clear water at Lloyd Pool is an oasis for some. Parks Department Executive Director Denise Johnson is thrilled to see the waves of change.
"This year, it's undergone $200,000 in renovations," said Johnson. "The new pool liner is the most dramatic change I'd say. It may not sound like a lot of money in the grand scheme of things but it is for our department."
And Lloyd Pool needed it. The future of the 37 year old pool became a discussion point in last year's mayoral election. The rehab project included the new liner, new coats of paint and a new dividing wall. Further plans call for new bleachers and other improvements.
The pool is used by the city's swim teams almost on a daily basis.
