Homestead Valley Pool Renewal: Targeting Fall 2020!

Please join us as we embark on the next phase of improving our extraordinary community center. We hope we can count on you to contribute to this wonderful resource!

The mission of the HVCA is to enhance the community through cultural, educational and recreational activities, events and service. The passion and commitment of Homestead Valley residents has allowed the Community Center, pool, meadow and 80+ acres of open space to be publicly owned and managed to ensure their continued preservation for years to come.

After 40+ years, the well-loved Homestead Valley pool is ready for a revitalization. The poolis facing significant infrastructure challenges including disintegrating plaster, aging, and inefficient mechanical equipment. We also have an urgent need for modern accessible bathrooms, showers and changing rooms.

A newly designed L-shaped pool provides a wide shallow end for our young, older or challenged swimmers to be safe and protected from lap swimmers. Modern energy efficient plumbing, heaters, and filtration systems will provide many years of recreational enjoyment for the community. Refined water sanitation and additional improved solar systems will decrease our carbon footprint. Improved ADA pool, shower and pool access will provide a welcoming atmosphere for all.


  • A welcoming gathering place for families to swim and enjoy the sunny outdoors.
  • A resource for all ages to stay active and healthy.
  • A perfect venue for birthday and graduation parties.
  • A pool that offers swim instruction in a private or group setting.
  • A treasured feature of summer camps offered by Camp Funderblast and Marin Horizon.
  • An opportunity for teens to develop leadership skills as gatekeepers and lifeguards.
  • Unique! Charming old school gathering place – ping pong, snack shack, open to all!
Proposed Homestead Pool Design


Initial cost estimates for this project have come in as high as $1.3M including contingencies.
Of course, we hope to reduce costs as we move to the engineering design phase and make decisions on materials, contractor, etc.

How can you help?

The HVCA Board has been working hard to secure funding for this renovation project. We have already achieved great success from a number of sources including HVCA reserves, CSA-14 reserves, donations from the County of Marin, and approval of a loan from the County for up to $400,000.  With all of this, we still have a funding gap.

This is a chance for our community to come together to improve a incredible resource that will add value across the board – from neighborhood connectedness to home values.In order to make our dreams of a new pool for Homestead Valley become a reality, we need your help.
