Adelphi Pool Capital Improvements Progress and Plan

Each year we come to Adelphi to enjoy our classic pool. After 65 years of service, the time has come to plan major renovations. This page has information on the planning process that is already underway and important next steps. While the need is great, this is a rare and exciting opportunity to design the pool we will have for years to come.
