The Washington Community Swim Center project will provide a major renovation of the Washington Pool facilities which were originally constructed in 1955.
Other pool facilities in Sunnyvale offer lap and competitive swimming, but there is currently no aquatic facility available with a focus on recreation. The renovation will significantly improve recreational swim, water play, swim lesson instruction, and other water recreation opportunities for the community.
