Local children jumped for joy at Northwest Park swimming pool, which celebrated its reopening June 13. The public pool in Northwest Park — which is off Van Born Road between Beech Daly and John Daly — had been closed for three years. City staff made certain the facility was ready with tile work and cleaning, paid for with Community Development Block Grant funds. The pool will be open from noon to 6 p.m. Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends. Daily rates are $2 for children 12-and-under; $4 for residents and $5 for non-residents. Seasonal passes will be made available.
