Background Discussion

John H. Marble - Splash into Summer Event - Saturday, June 14, 2014 - 11 am to 4 pm

  • Parks and Natural Resources Department staff will host a, free to visitors, signature event to celebrate its grand re-opening.  The event in concept will serve as both an open house to showcase the site and a sort of block party to entice the neighborhood into utilizing this community resource.

John H. Marble Community Pool Revitalization and Marketing Plan - Summer 2014

  • The purpose of this plan is to identify and describe necessary repairs and improvements to, and introduce the residents and visitors of Manatee County, to our east County pool, the John H. Marble Community Pool.  In recent years, the facility has been underused and underrepresented within the community, with very low attendance during its regular operating hours.  Under the direction of the Board of County Commissioners, staff from the Aquatics and Volunteer & Education Division of the Parks and Natural Resources Department has developed a marketing plan to promote the pool and increase use.  We also seek to establish the pool as a family-friendly local destination within the neighborhood.
