A day after West Hollywood city manager David Wilson declared that the West Hollywood Aquatic and Recreation Center (ARC) has received a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, the City of West Hollywood announced it will temporarily close the West Hollywood Aquatic Center swimming pools at the (ARC) at West Hollywood Park. The closure is necessary to complete final construction tasks for the newly opened swimming facilities. The closure will begin on Monday, October 10, 2022 and contractor work is anticipated to take approximately three to four weeks to complete.
The City and its contractors will commence work as soon as the swimming pools are closed to complete final construction “punch list” items, which include: reworking tile in bathrooms, waterproofing corrections, installation of lane-line anchors, additional striping, and repairs to the drain structures in the pools. Such items and remaining fixes, additions, and/or changes are typical and often expected at the near-completion of construction projects.
The City is aware this closure is frustrating for pool users and it will work to reopen the pools for community use as rapidly as possible. All affected groups, aquatics classes, and program participants will be notified by the City’s Recreation Services staff; the closure also impacts open swim. Updates for reopening the pools will be posted when available at www.weho.org/pool.
West Hollywood City Council, dignitaries, board members, commissioners, the West Hollywood Park Phase 2 steering committee, past council members, and West Hollywood residents gathered at West Hollywood park for a celebration of the grand opening of the Aquatic and Recreation Center at West Hollywood Park, on Saturday, August 13, 2022. The city held a ribbon-cutting ceremony, hosted an open house, and held the annual WeHo Rec Expo at the ARC.
