The interior of Sheldon Pool & Fitness Center

To meet increased demand for pool space for recreation, fitness and competitive swimmers, it’s time to renovate Sheldon Pool & Fitness Center. Bathrooms and locker rooms need upgrading to meet increased occupancy and code requirements and better utilizing the indoor space is key. Improving the energy efficiency of the pool is also required by code.

Sheldon Pool was built in 1967 with money from another bond and since then repairs, replacements and upgrades have been made that enhanced energy efficiency and maintained operation. However, many essential systems such as plumbing, electrical and equipment are beyond their expected useful lifespan and are in need of replacement.

Based on the three-year process of creating the Eugene Parks and Recreation System Plan, it was recommended 8,500 square feet of expanded natatorium, new indoor pool/ therapy pool, spa and recreation amenities be added to Sheldon Pool. Also in the recommendation were plans to renew interior finishes, ceilings, lighting, systems and replacing the HVAC, roof and pool equipment. Sheldon Pool did close in 2010 for seismic upgrades and again in 2012 to repair serious leaks, but a full overhaul of the building will ensure the facility can accommodate the growing needs of the community as a key part of the City-wide aquatics program.
