Main Pool Construction

Cool Pool Makeover.

The main pool at Burns Road Aquatic Complex is under construction as of August 2021. Our main pool was built in 1982 and has been an essential venue for many aquatic activities that have served the community well. Through swimming lessons, scuba classes, and water fitness programs, the main pool has been a central hub for community members to gain water safety knowledge and skills, while enjoying the social networking that community centers naturally provide to its patrons. 

This facility has served us well, but the time has come for a change! To proportionally continue providing water safety classes and water fitness programs with the increased demand from the community, the main pool is currently being renovated. The renovation is a key step in updating the recreational facilities on the Burns Road Recreation Campus. The new pool will become the centerpiece of learn-to-swim programs, which are incredibly vital for youth in South Florida.
