Three Arizona poets, Adam Miszuk, Celeste Duckworth and Richard Gross created poems integrated into the construction of the Maryvale Pool House.  Celeste Duckworth's poem “An Oasis in the Desert," and Adam Miszuk's poem “When My Fingertips are Wrinkled," are incorporated in the wall of the pool house. Richard Gross' poems “Step Step Step" and “One Drop of Water" are sandblasted into the concrete paths approaching the pool house.  The Spanish translation of the poems accompany the English versions.

This project is a collaboration between the City's Office of Arts and Culture and the Parks and Recreation Department.​
