The 136,000 gallon guinite pool had a major amount of done work in spring of 2013 when 30 coats of paint were removed by scraping and sandblasting. The cracks in the cement were then repaired and caulked and the pool was repainted fresh with depth numbers and safety lines. This was the biggest reconstruction project to the pool since the stainless steel gutters were installed.
Newly installed in summer of 2013 is a gravel walkway around the family playing field at Benjamin Hill Park. The walkway is one-fifth of a mile long so 5 laps = 1 mile. Thanks to the work of Neil Guthrie and the donated material from the Shirley Department of Public Works. Come exercise at BHP!
Construction on a new storage shad and ice skating pavillion began in fall of 2013. Stay tuned for more details.
