Council to vote on contract to renovate West Guth Pool

Posted: Updated:

On a hot summer day in Corpus Christi, West Guth Pool is the second most popular pool for residents to congregate at and cool off, according to the City of Corpus Christi.

However, West Guth Pool has been closed since 2016 due to deteriorating conditions including cracking of the pool shell, return water gutter failures, corroded piping and failing mechanical equipment.

Today, the City Council will vote on whether or not to sign a contract with Progressive Commercial Aquatics of Houston in the amount of $1.5 million dollars to bring the pool back to being a popular place for residents to spend sunny days. 

The project would address the problems with the current state of the pool and will also include a "zero-depth" entrance, a climbing wall for the kids, vertical play elements with spray features and a cool deck concrete finish. 

The Aquatic Facility Upgrades and Improvements projects are a part of Bond 2012, Proposition 4.

The City Council meeting will begin at 11:30 a.m. at City Hall. Attached below is the presentation that will be given at that meeting today.
