Warren Wilson College’s pool will open this fall. Renovations to the exterior structure are slated to begin in the coming days. The College hopes to open the doors in time for the 2017-18 swim team season.

The roughly $800,000 project is funded through a significant contribution from an anonymous donor, continued gifts from friends of the College, monies designated for capital improvements and the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners. The pool will have a new name, which the College will announce prior to the opening.

Before the pool closed in late 2014, it was used by a variety of public groups, organizations and community members. The need remains, and the College is set to re-establish partnerships with the various constituencies.
