Lowell and South Pool Information – December 2022
Mayor McLean is committed to getting Lowell and South Pools open as soon as possible. However, due to the volatility in the construction market, rapidly rising costs, and estimated cost analysis that far exceeded the city’s budgeted costs, the mayor has decided that the market environment must improve before the next steps in this process can be determined.
Once funding is secured, plans for both pools will be developed by the Parks and Recreation Department, considering already completed community outreach, and a comprehensive report will be provided for Boise City Council to consider regarding next steps for Lowell and South Pools.
Because Mayor McLean is committed to opening these pools and given the current environment that is unlikely to change prior to 2025, the mayor has directed Parks and Recreation staff to protect Lowell and South Pools by taking measures to stabilize them in their current condition. You can learn more about the pools and read condition and accessibility assessments on this webpage.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. City leaders recognize these are valued community amenities that enhance their respective neighborhoods. If you have any questions, please contact Boise Parks and Recreation via email for assistance.
