Christmas present on Belle Isle: 9 Island pool reopens!

The pool and deck at 9 Island Avenue finally open.

After 19 months of construction, the pool and deck at 9 Island Avenue reopened on Christmas Day.

A gorgeous day at the pool.

Surrounded by brand new white patio lounges and chairs, with blue cushions, the sparkling water was a huge hit with residents, who began gathering poolside after 9 a.m.

The pool closed in May 2011 for a massive deck and parking garage construction project. There’s still some work to be done — the pool landscaping isn’t finished, nor is is all the work on the two garage levels — what’s complete looks great.

    That is a wonderful gift. Nine island is where the J.C. Penny home was in the 1920′s I think. HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS.

  2. Thank you for all your wonderful news throughout the year! An awesome blog!đź‘Ť

  3. I was there. Nearly two years, and what to show? You’d think for the grand opening they could have finished the landscaping. It looked horrible. Dirt and wires sticking out everywhere. It shows you what can get accomplished in South Florida over a two year span…not much.
