2nd Public Meeting on Chinquapin Facility Feasibility Study

Community Invited to Attend the Second Public Meeting on the Chinquapin Park Recreation Center and Aquatics Facility Feasibility Study

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities will host a public meeting onWednesday, September 3 at 7 p.m. at the T.C. Williams High School Cafeteria, 3330 King St., to discuss the Chinquapin Park Recreation Center & Aquatics Facility Feasibility Study. The study is exploring options for a new 50-meter indoor pool and renovated recreation pool at the facility.

In June 2014, at the first public meeting, the consultant team from Hughes Group presented the findings from the Task-1A of the Feasibility Study and listened to community ideas about programming for the new and renovated pools. As part of the next phase of the study, the public is invited to review and discuss potential site designs, as well as learn about the market analysis completed by the consultants.
