From deep water pools to lap swim and spray features, Iowa City residents are being asked to provide input for the new City Park Pool.

The city recently unveiled four preliminary designs ranging in cost from $17 million to $19.5 million as part of phase two of a project that will completely replace the 75-year-old public pool.

The Iowa City City Council voted last year to replace the pool because of structural and safety concerns. Much of the current city facility is non-ADA compliant while the pool is also losing water at an alarming rate. The city hopes to address those concerns with accessible parking and travel routes, with a new pool open for business by the summer of 2026.
