The Kiwanis Club of Delphos and the Delphos Stadium Club joined forces to take on the construction of a new Pool House in July of 2018.
The original shower and restroom facility were built as part of the WPA (Works Progress Administration) project in 1941 and had not been updated or renovated since that time. Since the construction of the 4,000 square foot splash pad in 2017, the pool attendance has significantly increased, putting an increased strain on the current facility. The pool and splash pad are fully inclusive for all ages and physical abilities but the current restroom and shower facility did not lend itself to easily accommodate those with limitations.
The new 2,888 square foot Pool House houses new restrooms, changing areas and shower facilities for men and women and a new concession stand. The new concession stand is now accessible from the pool as well as the playground. The building also contains new office space, storage area as well as an improved life guard station. The structure is fully handicap accessible.
The Pool House officially opened on June 21, 2019 to the delight of pool goers. The original project was estimated at $250,000 but quickly grew to $340,000 thanks to generous donations and grants from businesses, individuals and foundations. The A.C. Dienstberger Foundation donated over $156,000 to the project between the 2 clubs over a 2 year period. The increased funding allowed for upgrades to the original plan and the ability to outfit the new concession stand with much needed refrigeration and freezer storage as well as upgrades to heating and cooling and tiling throughout.
