Plano’s Liberty Recreation Center is expected to close to the public Dec. 1 for an extensive series of renovations.
The facility is expected to remain closed until the fall of 2019 as crews revamp the pool, expand the existing indoor fitness area, construct an additional outdoor fitness area and conduct a number of other renovations, according to a memo presented Nov. 26 to Plano City Council members.
The council approved the $5.3 million expenditure for the renovation of the facility, which is located about a quarter mile east of Independence Parkway on Glencliff Drive.
The pool area in particular is due for a series of upgrades. Crews plan to line the pool with new tile, add a new entrance and replace the aging water slide with new aquatic features, according to the staff-prepared document.
Funding for the project will come primarily from bonds approved by Plano voters in 2013 and existing city capital funds.
