The pool is currently closed for necessary repairs to cracks in the pool’s fiberglass surface. A pool repair specialist was consulted and is repairing cracks with a new fiberglass coating. Additional repairs to the pool's mechanical systems are also being completed during this time. 

We are pleased to announce that after the above repairs have been completed, we will be opening the pool and have designed a modified program based on CDC health guidelines for public pools.
