Swimming Facility

A Winning Tradition

The George Fox University swim team will practice and compete at the newly renevated Chehalem Parks and Recreation Aquatic Center (completion anticipated December 2017). The $19.9 million bond measure was passed by voters on the November 2014 ballot and groundbreaking will begin in October 2016. 

This measure funds the redevelopment of CPRD’s 44-year-old community swimming pool facility as follows:

  • Replacing out-of-date machinery to improve energy efficiency;
  • Replacing structurally deficient cement and rebar infrastructure;
  • Redeveloping pool facility to meet current demand and reduce overcrowding;
  • Improved pool design to provide better safety for students and seniors;
  • Construction of additional space for regional school swim meets;
  • Renovations for ADA compliance;
  • Demolition of existing out-of-date structures and renovation and improvement of fitness section and acquisition of new equipment;
  • Parking and site improvements and furnishings and equipment related to the pool redevelopment; 
  • Citizen oversight would be required.
