Lebanon approves funds for new wave pool

The new pool project currently being constructed in Lebanon Memorial Park will be expanding after the Lebanon City Council approved a resolution Tuesday, Nov. 12, to issue bonds not to exceed $2 million for park improvements, including a new wave pool. The wave pool was listed under the park improvements, alongside a new mechanical building, a concession and admission building, and additional decking. The Lebanon Park Board voted Nov. 6 to go ahead with the issuance of bonds for this additional pool project, and it was passed unanimously by the city council. “The other project is just going so well that it seems like the right time to move forward,” said Parks Director John Messenger. “I’m really excited.” A wave pool was included in the initial designs for a new city pool, which were approved in the fall of 2012, but the wave pool was taken out and replaced with a lap swimming area after the city took more public comment. The final design, which included a pool with a beach entry, a lazy river, a lap swimming area and slides, was approved last June. Its price tag was also $2 million. But the current project was going so well — ahead of schedule and under budget — that Messenger wanted to go ahead and add the wave pool. If the wave pool and concession stand project also comes in under budget, there are several other park improvements that need to be addressed, Messenger added. A restroom is needed by the baseball diamond; there is road work that needs to be done around the park; and the basketball and tennis courts need repairs. Messenger said he hopes construction on the wave pool will begin in the spring, and it will be open by mid-summer. The things included in the initial pool project should all be open by Memorial Day, and the wave pool should open in July. See Wednesdasy's Times Sentinel for more on this story.
