Swimming Pool

The Luick Swimming Pool was originally built in 1957 and opened in 1958 as a result of a generous donation from local resident and philanthropist Chester P. Luick. Mr. Luick donated a significant portion of the funds needed to build the community's first pool. A number of volunteers labored for weeks on the construction of the pool.

A renovation was completed in 1995 when the city replaced the gutter and filters system and added a slide - which was one of the first slides in North Iowa. The city began another renovation and expansion program in the spring of 2007 by repairing and repainting the bottom of the pool. Following the closing of the pool in August 2007, the expansion project began to put a zero depth entry at the northwest side of the pool. The Pool Improvement Committee has been able to raise money to purchase for the pool a children’s activity/play unit along with the geysers. There are 54 lounge chairs encircling the pool for patrons.Other items recently installed are a 20’ umbrella, tables and benches and water basketball hoops.A canopy over the sundeck will be installed soon! The Committee continues to raise money to add a drop slide and a concession stand.Recognition of the donors will be displayed at the pool at the end of the project.
