Indoor pool closing for annual maintenance

August 1, 2007


The city's Indoor Aquatic Center will close next week for annual maintenance.

The center, 4706 Overland Drive, will be closed Aug. 5 through Aug. 19 to allow crews to drain the pools and perform maintenance that cannot be done while the facility is open.

The pool will reopen at 5:15 a.m. Aug. 20. The Outdoor Aquatic Center, 727 Ky., will remain open from 1 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. daily. Lap swimming will be available from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Yeah. Really smart. Schedule annual maintenance in the dead middle of Summer. Not like you could have done it in the winter when nobody is there or anything.

Perhaps they scheduled it during the "Dead of summer" because it IS dead. No students at Free State are using it for gym class, and if you want to swim, you have the option of going to the outdoor pool. If they would have closed this pool down during the winter, then there wouldn't be an alternative pool to use.

I think the plan was to do it while there is an alternative pool open.

Perhaps more people would swim there if they didn't keep the water so freaking cold.
