Delhi Swimming Pool Project has been Completed!

After years of planning and fundraising, the Delhi swimming pool has been completed and now awaits a Spring opening. This project has evolved over the last 15 years. Its size, positioning and municipal funding has changed over this time, but the mission of offering a recreational site for our communities,its families and visitors has not wavered. While the Pool Project began with local citizens energy and the leadership of Wilbur S.Oles, Jr. for the first 6-7 years, it was through the support of the Town of Delhi that helped move it forward. Offering a safe, friendly environment for people to gather to swim, picnic and enjoy a beautiful rural setting has always remained in the forefront of this project. The pool transformed from having three distinct areas to a rectangular main pool with a separate pool for toddlers. Along the way, its placement on the property rotated and the pool building became more functional. While a salt water pool was explored and briefly adopted as the most efficient way to go, it was rather quickly determined that chlorine was more stable and reliable for a public swimming pool.

Check out the photos on this Website to see the progression of construction. Hats off to Eric Robert, Floyd Vogt and Jason Yando for their oversite through this construction.

Tune in to the Website to get up to date information about the Grand Opening in the Spring. That event will be early as this swimming pool has the capacity to be heated and therefore, taking a plunge in it could be much earlier in the season!
