Everybody in the Pool!

After more than a year of renovations, the city of Las Vegas’ Pavilion Center pool, 101 S. Pavilion Center Dr., is back in business. Fourteen months and $3.85 million later, the pool reopened Dec. 13. The new-and-improved facility features retractable doors and rooftop, and the same 50-meter pool it’s had since it first opened in 2002. The renovation was funded by the Clark County School District ($1.3 million), bond proceeds ($2.1 million) and proceeds from the regional construction tax ($460,000 of which had to be used for recreation facilities in Ward 2).

Pool passes are still $1-$2 per day, and monthly memberships are $15-$20, with family passes available for $30. The pool hosts open swimming 4-8 p.m. Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays, and noon-3 p.m. Saturdays. It’s also home to water polo, synchronized swimming, diving teams and lessons.
