City Park Pool

"100 Days of Summer"
By Joe McGrane
1599 City Park Drive

Joe McGrane created a strong entryway element for the new City Park Pool. The area was previously an empty space with no seating for patrons waiting for the pool to open. McGrane used this need as inspiration to create an artistic piece surrounded by sandstone seating. The center castle form holds a large steel carnival mirror. Viewing tubes span the width of the concrete form and contain objects and images of the pool's past. Colorful tiles adorn the seating and there is a ring of 100 aluminum disks symbolizing the length of the pool season. Some of the disks are engraved with images representing holidays in the season.
