This neighborhood gem was renovated and upgraded for Boston Centers for Youth and Families (BCYF) Draper Pool swimmers to enjoy the health and wellness benefits of swimming. Work on the BCYF Draper Pool began in September of 2013 and included upgrades to mechanical systems, interior pool areas, lobby and locker room areas as well as the exterior including a newly paved and redesigned driveway and parking lot. The project utilizes natural light and energy-efficient systems and a new roof and new dehumidification system to help save on future energy costs. This renovation also has created a new outdoor patio area adjacent to the pool that includes the addition of glass accordion-style doors. This new group of glass doors lightens up the pool area and opens it up to the outdoor patio. Aquatics programming offered at the BCYF Draper Pool includes swim lessons for all ages, lap swim, open swim time, swim team, lifeguard training classes and more.
