Buckman Pool open house

From a mailing list I’m on:

The inner east side and Buckman Elementary Community have been invited to a Public Walk-through scheduled for Buckman Pool this Friday, June 24th at 6:30PM. Portland Public Schools is facilitating the meeting. This is a chance to tour the empty pool and find out what the possible options are regarding repair costs.

As you may know, this pool is the community’s only public recreational resource in a three mile area. Although we have been promised a Community Center in the future, the fact remains that Buckman Pool should be repaired, reopened and remain open until the completion of the Eastside Community Center.

The pool is located on the south side of Buckman Elementary facing the playground which runs parallel to Stark Street. Buckman school is at SE 16th & Pine Strs. Please wear comfortable shoes that are not open-toed or sandaltype as we will walking around down in the pool. PPS has also advised that this is not a child-friendly event as there are many trip hazards.
