Did you know Lynwood’s Natatorium is 60 years old?
This historic facility is where generations of Lynwoodians learned to swim and competed in competitions. But age has taken its toll and our beloved Natatorium, like many of us, needs some tender loving care.
Last month, the Lynwood City Council voted on a package of repairs to the Natatorium that would allow the pool to be opened in time for Summer break. Since then, it has been discovered that the facility needs emergency repairs. Last night, the City Council passed a resolution to approve the recommended repairs, which consist of:
– Upgrade and repair of all electrical systems,
– Repair entire tiled area surrounding the pool,
– Fix all exit and entrance doors to make them more secure,
– Fix entire roof system,
– Drain pool and check for any leakage and cracks,
– Repair plumbing systems for both the pool and the bathrooms,
– Evaluate the structural integrity of the entire facility and make repairs as needed,
– Replace all broken bathroom stalls and fixtures,
– Address safety issues discovered during renovations,
– Remove existing south patio wall and replace with a decorative fence,
– Reconfigure patio area, and
– Paint the entire facility.
The repairs to the Natatorium are projected to cost about $5 million of that $1.5 has already been secured by Assemblyman Anthony Rendon.
We are looking forward to the Summer opening of the newly repaired Natatorium!
