Public pool re-opens in Richmond

RICHMOND, CA (KGO) -- The city of Richmond hosted a grand re-opening of the Richmond Plunge Public Pool.

The 84-year-old building was at risk of being torn down, until the community members came together to fund an $8 million retrofit.

There were a lot of people to thank today.

"To the contractors, to the funders, to all the non-profits, to the government agencies, to the neighborhood councils, to the commissioners, to all the residents, who pulled together their energy, their desire, and their dedication to preserve this wonderful, wonderful project," Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin said.

"The Plunge" has a rich history in Richmond. When it opened in 1926, it was the largest indoor swimming pool in the state.
