At a city council meeting a number of years ago, a group of young mothers came to plead for a toddlers’ wading pool. The two-foot drop at the shallow end of Reaney Park pool was unsafe for small children. The goal continued to be discussed throughout successive years. Construction will begin in June to make this goal a reality. The pool complex will be closed for construction throughout the summer season. Pullman Aquatic and Fitness Center (PAFC) will be open all summer.
For questions or more information, contact Recreation Superintendent Kurt Dahmen 338-3225 or Acting PAFC Manager Gordon Dowler at 338-3237.
During the pool complex construction, utility work and street improvements will be made around Reaney Park.

Reaney Park Pool Complex Improvements
Design work and permitting on improvements to Reaney Pool are nearing completion. The project includes a splash pad with water features, improvements to the dive tank including a new liner, remodel of the existing restroom facility, and relocation of the shade structure to an expansion area of the pool deck. The project will also include a 15-lot parking lot on the west side of the existing pool complex. The estimated cost of the project is now $915,194, which includes the parking lot improvements. Construction is expected to start in June and be completed in September.
Reaney Park Utility and Street Improvements
This year’s Accelerated Street Resurfacing project will be done in conjunction with sanitary sewer and storm drain utility work in the vicinity of Reaney Park on the following streets:
• Lentil Lane, from Spring Street to Reaney Way, including the intersection with Reaney Way;
• Reaney Way to Gray Lane, including intersection with Gray Lane;
• Gray Lane from Morton Street to Reaney Way;
• Morton Street.
The work will include replacement of existing sanitary sewer and storm drain, as well as a section of new storm drain piping. Other work includes eleven (11) new ADA ramps. The existing street section will be removed as a large portion is badly deteriorated concrete not suitable for our typical grind and mix method of pavement rehabilitation. The cost estimate for this work is $641,838. The work is scheduled to start after May 11 and be complete by early August. Accelerated Street resurfacing is an annual project that is funded from the Street Fund.
