Some excellent news came this week for Tahoe Park residents — and for anyone else who has enjoyed the park’s public pool. An effort by the Tahoe Park Neighborhood Association was successful in reopening Tahoe Park Pool for the 2012 season! TPNA was able to secure donations by the Sierra Health Foundation and local representatives Councilmember Kevin McCarty and County Supervisor Phil Serna and will be able to run the pool June 19th through August 25th from 2-6 PM Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Not only is it now open but it will have hours after business hours on Weekdays? I couldn’t ask for more. I don’t know about you but I am really looking forward to Saturday late afternoons at the Tahoe Park Pool.
The pool has been shuttered for more than a year since being shut down by the City’s Parks and Rec department, so the TPNA is organizing a cleanup of the building (using NextDoor.com, because we’re plugged in like that).
Hooray for citizen activism!

Thanks for the great article! Tahoe Park neighbors are continuing the fundraising efforts. We will have fundraising BBQ for the Pool and Tahoe Park clean-up day on Saturday June 16th. It is great to see the community support to keep a vital resource for youth that impacts not only Tahoe Park, but kids from Oak Park, Tallac Village and Colonial Heights.

I was so happy to read about this and excited about taking my boy to the pool. Then a stupid study came out about what percent of ADULTS pee in a pool and how many (dont) shower before entering a pool. I still really want to take him there, but a little more cautious.
Anyways…makes me proud of “my” neighborhood (Colonial Villager) and the collective goodness.
What time is the BBQ fundraiser on the 16th?
