Marshall Community Pool
About Our Pool
For over 50 years, the citizens and visitors of the Town of Urbanna and Middlesex County had access to a public community pool in Urbanna’s Taber Park. That pool structurally failed due to age in 2019, and could no longer be repaired.
Reconstruction of a new 75' X 42’ pool with 6 marked lanes for competitive swim meets is currently underway. Included at the shallow end of the pool will be a large sun/swim shelf for our youngest swimmers and families. A pool lowering device will make the pool ADA accessible. An ADA accessible bathhouse and snack bar is also included in this phase. The grand opening of the pool is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, 2024.
The pool and its facilities can be used in conjunction with the new neighboring Bristow Community Pavilion. Sport courts, including Pickleball are planned for the next phase of Taber Park improvements.
Pool Project Cost
The Marshall Community Pool project will cost $1.2 million. With the help of several gracious donors, we have successfully raised all but 120,000.
The Marshall Family
When the Marshall family purchased Richardson Drug Store on Cross Street and moved to Urbanna in 1929, they came to stay. Their home was above the drug store and “Doc” Marshall was always available. Over the generations, Marshall’s Drug Store was successful financially. With that success, the family continued to invest back into the Town. That investment brought longstanding positive and generational quality of life to the community. Whether the Town needed a doctor, a prescription filled at 3 a.m., a plumber, an ace pitcher for the semi-pro Urbanna baseball team in the 1940’s, or funding to help Urbanna Oyster Festival through bad weather years, the Marshalls made these things, and more, happen. The Urbanna Town Council voted to name the community pool to honor those family members who have passed and to thank those that remain today continuing the family legacy.
