Northeast Haines City's Replacement Pool

During my first 60 days of office I resurrected the Oakland Pool Replacement Project in the northeast side of the city. My tenacity and perseverance resulted in the City agreeing to find funding through CRA(Community Redevelopment Agency) funding to construct a pool built in the 1960s during segregation that closed down because of major safety issues. We are beyond excited to open our new aquatic facility in Haines City! A new 3,328 sq. ft., zero entry, leisure swimming pool offering a splash pad-like feel with various interactive water play features is the latest addition in the Haines City Parks & Recreation's aquatic inventory.

The Janet J. Smith Aquatic Facility, located in Ben W. Graham Park at 1900 N. 10th Street, officially broke ground on March 9, 2020, and was executed with a budget of approximately $1,835,000. Hydro Solutions Consulting, LLC managed the project, including facility design; construction was completed by Waller Construction, Inc.
