Julius Boehm Pool to close for a week starting Sunday
August 19, 2010
NEW — 8 a.m. Aug. 19, 2010
The city plans to close Julius Boehm Pool from Sunday to Aug. 29 for cleaning and maintenance.
The pool is due to reopen Aug. 30.
King County built the pool in 1972 under the Forward Thrust program — a series of bonds passed in 1968 and 1970 to fund parks, recreation facilities, roads and other infrastructure.
The pool had a 25-year life expectancy. Julius Boehm Pool opened when Issaquah had about 3,000 residents. The city has about 27,000 residents nowadays.
The county transferred the pool to city ownership in 1994.
