September 15, 2014

Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Christopher Byner, Interim Executive Director of Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF,) are pleased to invite you to attend the Re-Opening Celebration for the BCYF Draper Pool in West Roxbury on Saturday, October 18th.  Guests are encouraged to arrive at 10 a.m. to enjoy light refreshments, music, programming information and more.  The speaking program will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Work on the pool began in September of 2013 and included a multi-million dollar renovation to the exterior of the building, mechanical systems, interior spaces, the pool and upgrades to the locker rooms.  While the pool was closed, staff and programming moved to the West Roxbury Educational Complex pool in West Roxbury.  They will return to the BCYF Draper Pool in time for the official re-opening.

The BCYF Draper Pool offers a variety of programming including lessons for all ages, swim team, lap swim, open swim and family swim. The BCYF Draper is one of 17 pools operated by BCYF in Boston.
