Proposed Belmont Pool Design to be Revealed to Long Beach Community Saturday

The once-renowned Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool, the host of the 1968 and 1976 Olympic Trials, is no longer around, but plans for its replacement are still in their infancy. About a year after the city hosted its last conceptual design meeting, the City of Long Beach is inviting residents to view the proposed design of the new facility, the next phase of the process to build new Belmont Beach and Aquatic Center.

Temporary Belmont Plaza Pool Opens to Public

The first swimmers dove into the new heated, Olympic-sized Belmont Plaza Temporary Pool Thursday during an opening ceremony attended by community members and local leaders. The waters were filled with swimmers young and old, thrilled to have a public pool after the closure of the Belmont Pool Natatorium in February.
