Clearwater’s Long Center Pools Closing for Upgrades
CLEARWATER, Fla. – In keeping with Clearwater’s promise to provide quality facilities to residents and guests, the Long Center’s pools will close on June 12 so the city can make upgrades. Work on the pools is expected to last more than four months with a completion date set for Nov. 30. The rest of the Long Center will be open, and operate as normal. During this time, Morningside Pool located at 2400 Harn Blvd. will be home to the Long Center’s swimming programs and lessons. Those affected by the closure can use pools at Morningside Recreation Center, Ross Norton Recreation and Aquatic Complex (1426 S. M.L.K. Jr. Ave.), North Greenwood Recreation and Aquatic Complex (900 N. M.L.K. Jr. Ave.), and the Clearwater Beach Recreation Complex (69 Bay Esplanade).
Upgrades to the Long Center Pools will include upgrading the deck and tiling, resurfacing of the pools, new lighting, and pump room/mechanical upgrades. When work is complete, visitors can expect a brand new look on a state-of-the-art facility. Those with questions or concerns can call the Long Center at (727) 793-2320.
