Maryvale Pool House

Maryvale is a master planned community that was developed by John F. Long over fifty years ago to provide homes for young families and to create neighborhoods that included park space. He built the parks and gave them to the City of Phoenix. This site had a park, community center and a pool. Through the years, the neighborhood aged and signs of urban blight were visible. The City of Phoenix, through the use of bond funds, worked to reclaim and redefine the troubled neighborhood. The community center was rebuilt and a library was added to the site, helping to renew a sense of community and creating a local destination. The final step in redevelopment was the pool house. The original 1950’s structure was overdue for an environmentally appropriate replacement.
