Reservoir Park & Pool Renovation Project Underway In Akron City of Akron

Akron City officials and community leaders broke ground for a new pool and renovated recreation center at Reservoir Park in Goodyear Heights, on Tuesday.

The pool will be completely redone, and the community center will be partially demolished, expanded, and renovated.

The new pool will feature a 15-foot slide, shallow water play space, 25-meter lap lanes, climbing wall, shaded areas, updated bathhouse and more.

The community center will include an updated and modern building entrance, multi-purpose/meeting room, kitchen, art room, game room, and gathering space. Outdoor renovations will add more green scape, seating areas, improved pavement, and feature an enhanced fire pit area. The new center and grounds will provide more space for community gatherings and flexible programming space.

The project will cost around $10 million dollars, will be paid for with federal funds, and is expected to be complete in the summer of 2025.

This is an illustration of what it will look like when it is done:
