The current aquatic facility was built in the early 1970s and needs renovation to comply with current health and safety codes as well as modern-day recreational, fitness and competition standards. The Walnut Creek Aquatic Foundation has committed to raise $3 million towards the rebuild of the 50-meter pool for use by the entire community as well as the swim teams that currently use the facility year round: Walnut Creek Aquabears, Walnut Creek Masters, and Walnut Creek Aquanuts.
The City of Walnut Creek has stated that unless WCAF raises $3 million it will not rebuild the 50-meter pool and would replace it with a smaller 10-lane pool. This would mean that the home of the All City Meet would be gone and that we would no longer have a pool large enough to allow for recreational swimming, lap swimming, swim team, and lessons to happen all at once. We would not have a pool large enough for conference championships or other large meets.
With community donations, we can raise the $3 million needed to build a 50-meter pool and ensure our tradition of world-class aquatics continues.
