The Dolores Bengtson Aquatic Center will be the host site for a competitive swim meet in the coming weeks.
The Pleasanton Seahawks Swim team will host the Senior 2, Long Course meet during the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3. The meet is expected to draw about 500 swimmers and spectators from throughout the Bay Area who will begin to arrive each morning at 7 a.m. for a 9 a.m. meet start.
The meet is expected to conclude both days at about 3 p.m.
As a result of the meet, the aquatic center’s regularly scheduled weekend programs will be cancelled; however the public is invited to attend the meet for which there is no admission fee.
The city has worked with the Seahawks to develop plans for a successful competition and reduced impact on the neighborhoods surrounding the pool, located at 4455 Black Avenue near Santa Rita Road.
City staffers have developed a traffic flow system to make competitor drop-off easier, and participants have been notified of pre-designated parking locations that will reduce the impacts on the surrounding neighborhoods.
