The long-awaited reopening will start with a phased reintroduction of programming. The 55-year-old facility in the Cal Young neighborhood closed in late Spring 2021 for expansion and renovation, thanks to funding from the Parks and Recreation Bond measure passed by Eugene voters in May 2018.
“We’re really excited to finally unveil Sheldon Pool to the community,” Recreation Director Craig Smith said. “The unique warm-water pool and current channel provide versatile programming space that serves fitness, recreation and swim lesson needs. The Sheldon Pool renovation creates program opportunities that don’t exist at Echo Hollow or Amazon, meaning they're a good addition to our overall aquatics' services.” Read more about the renovation.
Sheldon Pool features a three-pool design that includes a 25-yard indoor pool, a deep diving well great for no-impact water aerobics, and a brand-new warm-water pool. Programs include lap swimming, recreational swims, water-based fitness classes, and fitness center workouts and rentals.
