Join Us for a Party for Bicentennial Pool on July 30!

Join Us for a Party for Bicentennial Pool on July 30 – Festivities Begin at 11 a.m.

The City of Santa Fe’s Community Engagement Department invites community members to a party at 1121 Alto St. to celebrate the newly-renovated Bicentennial Pool on Saturday, July 30 at 11:00 a.m. Water toys and other prize giveaways will be available for party attendees!

After the party begins, a celebratory “community splash” will take place inside the pool facility at 11:20 a.m. Arrive early to ensure your spot to swim – capacity limits are in place at the pool for safety, and entry is on a first come, first served basis.

The party will continue in the park and includes first come, first served pizza and refreshments at 11:45 a.m. At 12:30 p.m., the City of Santa Fe Fire Department will provide a Fire Spray-Down for all attendees at Alto Park. We hope to see you there!

Why We’re Celebrating

In 2021, the Public Works Department determined that Bicentennial Pool’s plumbing and jet systems were deteriorating and leaking thousands of gallons of water per month. The pool needed a major overhaul to fix the leaks, and the Governing Body approved a $2.3 million renovation project to get the pool ready for the 2022 summer season. The project was the first large-scale set of repairs and upgrades made at the facility since it opened over 40 years ago!

The work included a new lap pool built from the shell up with a plaster surface and inlaid interior tile, new decking and landscaping surrounding the pool, and repairs and preventative maintenance on mechanical systems and other facility structures. Other improvements were new energy-saving lighting and water-saving fixtures, air leakage repairs, and a solar carport in the parking lot.
