The pool at Washington Park opened Thursday July 16 after experts from the City Health Department determined the water is safe for swimming. The opening was delayed after the pool pump broke and we had to order a new one. The pump arrived promptly but it took an installation crew two weeks to arrive and install the pump. They only showed up after reporter Courtney Zieller and the Eyewitness News Team at WFSB Channel 3 did a report on the closed pool. We apologize for the delay. The pool is now open and staffed with lifeguards seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
