The Optimist Park Complex project included additions and renovations of the entire complex. There was a complete demolition of an existing pool house and rebuilding of a new 8,000 square foot pool house. Included were new equipment rooms and an installation of a permanent roof with numerous skylights distributed throughout the facility. The interior of the facility included a new reception area, classroom, family dressing rooms along with new bathrooms, automatic flush valves, and new shower fixtures. The Olympic regulation pool was originally installed by J.M. Thompson during an earlier project.
