Como Park has a long history of being one of Saint Paul’s crown jewels. Como Park features an accredited zoo, renowned conservatory, expansive green space, golf course, lake, tennis courts, athletic fields including three new artificial turf fields and a host of other park amenities. Como Park is also home to an aging pool that is in desperate need of replacement.

The pool at Como Regional Park had extensive infrastructure, mechanical and electrical issues which deteriorated to the point that short term repairs were no longer sufficient. The City remains committed to keeping a pool in Como Park. To address this commitment, the facility was taken out of operation for a period of time while a detailed design process developed plans for a new facility to be online at a future date.

Project Information
The replacement design process began with the the formation of a design task force made up of community members, city staff, and external aquatic consultants.  To view the outcome of the design process, please click here.

The facility is currently under construction.  Construction will be complete in September 2011 with a Grand Opening in the Spring of 2012.
