Area residents discuss the renovation of the swimming pool at Victory Park in Stockton.

From lap swimming and aquatic fitness to swim lessons and family fun, the city is looking for input on programs Stocktonians would like to see offered at Victory Park Pool through an online survey available through Sept. 6.

City staff will also be at Victory Park Aug. 17 during Victory Park Concerts in the Park — which starts at 6 p.m. — to chat about the pool renovations for interested residents.

ICYMI: Stockton receives $5.4 million for Victory, McKinley Park pool renovations

The city held a previous gathering at Victory Park Aug. 2 for residents to share ideas about the renovation at Victory Park Pool.

The pool is currently slated for renovation and reopening by the end of 2023 thanks to a $5.4 million grant to renovate the long-shuttered Victory Park and McKinley Park pools from the help of State Sen. Susan Talamantes Eggman.

The public swimming pool at Victory Park has been closed since 2013, a casualty of the city’s financial crisis and subsequent bankruptcy.
