Eat breakfast and discuss Govalle Pool improvements

Friday, June 24, 2016 by Kayleigh Hughes

Austinites are invited to a community breakfast hosted by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department during which they can listen to a presentation about Govalle Pool’s impending redesign by the pool’s design consultant, Asakura Robinson, as well as provide feedback and input on the final design and “share memories at Govalle Neighborhood Park and Pool.” In 2014, the city identified Govalle Pool as a “Critical Pool” that may functionally fail within five years, setting out to make $3.1 million in improvements to the aquatic facility, which would be similar to those of the recently completed Westenfield Pool. That neighborhood pool includes gender-specific restroom facilities, a lap recreation pool, an activity pool (tot pool), expansive deck space, shade structures and an art component. The Community Breakfast for Govalle Pool Improvements will take place on July 9 from 9-11 a.m. at Govalle Park, 5200 Bolm Road.
