Nobleton-Pool

Many of you may have heard by now that a new pool house for the Nobleton Public Pool has been approved by Council and construction is underway.

For as long as I can remember, the pool has been a hub of community activity during the warm months. Paul Olsen, a member of the Nobleton Lions Club recently shared with me that the pool was originally built and funded by the Lions Club during the early 1970s. The Lions operated the pool for the first two years in an agreement with the Township. Following that, it was turned over to the Township as a fully paid for and profitable operating facility.

We are indebted to the Lions for their vision and enduring drive to support and develop our community. Their contributions are indeed, significant.

A commemorative plaque will be placed in the new building that acknowledges the Lion’s involvement and financial support. The project is expected to be complete by summer 2016.

Here’s an overview of the plans for the new building:

  1. I am very excited to see something being done with the pool house in nobleton. The only comment I would make would be that I do not see any wheel chair accessible change rooms. Also, I know there is limited space, but I really do think a family change room would be much appreciated. There are many families that take there young children swimming or to lessons, and it would be convienient for there to be somewhere they could change together.
    That is all. Good to see change happening in our little town!!

  2. Paula I’m glad to be able to let you know that the plans do include a family washroom and the building is being constructed in accordance with accessibility standards. King Township received $50,000 in grant money from the Ontario Government to make this a facility that can be enjoyed by all for years to come.

    It is a future goal of the Township to improve the pool deck, so that portion of the facility will also be in accordance to accessibility standards. I hope we can achieve this goal in the near term.

  3. Hi,

    Is it covered?
