Rebuild Malvern Hills Pool!

Tuesday is THE Vote. Write City Council Now!

As of last May, there was broad support among City Council to rebuild Malvern Hills Pool and to provide the needed funding for the pool in a Parks Bond Referendum to be voted on in November.

We need YOU and everyone you know to write to City Council and remind them of their commitment when they vote on bond in the Tuesday July 23rd meeting.

Our petition has received over 2,250 signatures and we've sent over 2000 letters to City Council and Parks & Rec leaders. Streets are lined with signs supporting the pool. But we can't stop now! We need one last, bug LOUD PUSH!

History of Malvern Hills Pool

Malvern Hills Park opened as Horney Heights Park in 1922. Construction on the pool began in 1934 and was completed the next year using federal New Deal funding. City officials formally dedicated the park, pool, and bathhouse to the community on June 15, 1936.

In 1970, new walls were placed in the pool which reduced its size by seven inches. The same year, a filtration system was installed. Prior to this, the pool was drained and refilled once a week to ensure clean water. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s Open Space program funded extensive improvements in 1973 including a complete remodel of the bathhouse, and additional deck space around the pool.
