Supervisor Campos to get update on Garfield Park

Following a year of aquatic drama and a $243,000 fix at Garfield Pool, Supervisor David Campos wants to hear how things are going.

Garfield Pool at 25th and Harrison streets was closed for its annual cleaning last winter, but park staff found cracks in the sealant among other issues that kept it closed for the first half of the year. Local high school students were learning their backstrokes without water.

Then Campos started questioning why the repairs were taking so long because of the pool users were inquiring.

Now Campos and nonprofit Neighborhood Parks Council have set up a meeting on Sept. 29 to talk about any other challenges at the park.

Garfield Park is also one of seven open spaces in The City that have been renovated with synthetic turf.

The meeting is at 6 p.m., but the location has not been determined, probably because it’s also the citywide Back to Rec Night and the pool’s already booked.
