Natatorium closure continues

The Mashouf Wellness Center’s natatorium remains closed prior to SF State’s campus closure due to unhealthy air quality and Thanksgiving break.

The natatorium initially closed on Nov.13 which prompted SF State’s Campus Recreation department to tweet, “The Natatorium will be closed until further notice! We apologize for any inconvenience.”

Campus closure due to the Camp Fire’s unhealthy air conditions occurred the day after the natatorium closed, prolonging students from being able to use the facility.

Two weeks later, SF State reopened campus, welcoming students back to attend classes, while Mashouf Wellness Center’s natatorium continues its closure without prediction to when it will reopen.

SF State’s Campus Recreation Department tweeted Sunday evening stating, “The Natatorium will continue to remain CLOSED until further notice.”

Though the natatorium may not be used, all other facilities at the Mashouf Wellness Center are open and exercise classes in the facility have resumed.

    Sarah, report on the issue of the loss of community space that existed prior on that site, neglected by SFSU-CSU and bought off prior Parkmerced owners, it was a loss of use for the building of that site. The tenants of Parkmerced should have free or reduced cost access to ALL facilities on that site. Or a reduction in rent for loss of use of the prior facilities and amenities that belonged to tenants. The U.Corp and SFSU-Trustee's stole it from the tenants of Parkmerced, never gave anything in return, and ignored the impacts of years of not having cared for tennis courts, basketball courts, and open space amenities and a community building. the swindle of the century was SFSU's Corrigan's viewpoint and if you google it you will see why the swindle continues to today's SFSU-CSU Masterplan 2035 process.
