Municipal Pool History

Early History

In the early 1930s, the pool and the surrounding buildings were constructed as part of a Works Progress Administration and National Youth Association program. The original construction of the facility provided jobs for the citizens of this community who were suffering through the hard times of the Great Depressions years.

From this work project came a football stadium, public swimming pool, and gymnasium, which the school district would use as part of the high schools facilities until 1998, when the pool returned to the supervision of the City of Navasota.


Renovations

After the City of Navasota invested nearly $350,000 in improvements, the pool and surrounding areas were renovated to meet all the requirements necessary for safety standards. New racing lanes were installed and the length was modified to meet the needs of the Navasota Swim Team in order for them to host meets at the pool.
