Description Rifle Metro Pool is located on the corner of Railroad Avenue and 18th Street. Construction of the new Rifle Metro Pool started in August of 2019 and expected completion in May of 2020. The original pool was built in 1969 with the waterslide and other upgrades added in 1993. Formally known as the Art Dague Pool and Waterslide was operated by the Rifle Metropolitan Park District until 2006, when the Penny Sales Tax was passed and the site was given to the City.
