100 years of aquatics - Will there be more? Moore’s Park Pool

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the J.H. Moores Memorial Natatorium—known as the Moores Park Pool—is a national treasure. For the past ten decades, the pool has provided summer recreation, swim lessons and athletic competitions, social interaction and relaxation to Lansing residents and beyond. However, years of maintenance and budget challenges have resulted in the pool’s decline. Significant rehabilitation is needed to bring the pool into the 21st century, while maintaining its historic charm. Mary Toshach, President of Preservation Lansing, will go over a brief history of the oldest operable Wesley Bintz designed pool including a discussion about its proposed renovation and future use(s).
