Thanks to a donation of more than $530,000 from the William N. Pennington Foundation, Washoe County Regional Parks & Open Space was able to replaster the main pool, add a new diving board, and install an ADA-compliant ramp into the pool. The pool was also remodeled to add more area in the shallow section to accommodate children and those learning to swim. The wading pool was removed to make way for a new splash pad.

Located next to the historic Bowers Mansion at Bowers Mansion Regional Park, the County's "Z" shaped, 44 meter, heated outdoor pool includes: easy entry ladders, a new ADA-compliant ramp and a hydraulic lift.
