About Herkner Memorial Pool


City councilman, member of the Port Commission and twice mayor, Sidney D. Herkner had an illustrious career in Redwood City government. During his second term as mayor, the Redwood Shores development got underway, and the Community Activities Building on Roosevelt Avenue and the swimming pool at Hoover School were constructed.

Herkner, who died in 1976, left the city a $100,000 bequest, which was combined with monies from the state to renovate the pool at Community Park. Renamed the Herkner Memorial Swim Center in his honor, the remodeled, solar-heated facility was dedicated on May 16, 1981.
