Parts for a new pool complex at Paso Robles High School have arrived and the construction aspect of the project is expected to go out to bid later this month.

The aquatic center will include a 50-meter pool and a 25-yard pool, along with a concession stand, public restroom building, changing room building, classroom, storage rooms, administrative office, and bleachers.

“The 25-yard pool provides eight laps so that we can have a warm-up pool and actually host local, regional, state, and national competitions here and it’ll be one of the only ones in the county that actually offers that to our students and community members,” said Chris Williams, Superintendent of the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District.

The pool was custom-built in Italy by Myrtha Pools and shipped over in several large shipping containers.

Construction is expected to last about nine months and Williams says the goal is to have it completed by November of next year.

The project will cost about $5.7 million with most of that money coming from a bond measure.
