Price Hill Recreation Center & Pool

After a $4,155,500 renovation, Price Hill Recreation Center was officially re-opened on March 31, 2015. Dempsey Aquatic Center opened in May 2015 for the summer season. The many construction improvements of the renovation project upgrade the spaces. To safely upgrade the facility, the Price Hill Recreation Center closed September 2013 for construction.

At the Recreation Center itself, a new addition stands on the parking-lot side of the building which is home to the center’s offices. The entire interior of the building is renovated, the fitness room is expanded with an added multipurpose room and windows. The entry for the recreation center is now closer to the parking lot which has been renovated to become one lot and provides more usable spaces.

 Dempsey Aquatic Center reopened May 23, 2015 with a totally new pool with zero-depth entry, six lap lanes, spray features and a two-flume slide. The pool is accessible via a ramp at the zero-depth entry and a chairlift in the lap lanes. The pool building has restrooms and a new concession window.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held October 1, 2013 to mark the beginning of renovations at the Price Hill Recreation Center. Not your typical groundbreaking, a wall containing black and white photos of the center and grounds was smashed with sledgehammers to represent the “out with the old, in with the new” mentality.

With new greenspace, landscaping, improved accessibility of site amenities, and new site signage, the Price Hill Recreation Complex is a better space for you!
