Keach Pool Renovation
The pool at Keach Park has been renovated as the third stage of a of a multi-year process to upgrade all of the City of Concord’s community pools. Construction started in the fall with pool replacement services contracted by South Shore Gunite. This renovation similarly reflects the renovation completed last summer at Kimball Pool and the summer of 2016 at Guyette Pool in Rolfe Park. The pool now features a beach style ramp with zero-entry access, a new deck with increased floor traction and drainage to reduce accidents, improved energy efficiency with new lighting and filtration media, new bathroom fixtures, fresh paint, and gusher jets! Our Public Properties Division managed all project contractors and worked on property updates for this project.
The pool at Keach Park is officially open for the season! Concord and Penacook residents must bring their ID for free pool entry. Non-residents must purchase a family pass at the Parks and Recreation office (City Wide Community Center at 14 Canterbury Rd.) ahead of time for $113 and will have access to all seven community pools for the entire season.
