The pool is open! The Forest Park swimming pool officially opened Saturday and will be open every day, weather permitting, from noon to 5 p.m.
Pool manager, Sara Osborn said they had to wait for the water temperature to reach 75 degrees. Rain or lightning, as well as pool temperature, could cause a temporary pool closing.

Swimming on Monday was cool but it didn't chill the enthusiasm of the kids. Caitlin Stemm and Josey Parr said it was cold but they were still having lots of fun. Raz Simms gave up Harry Potter and basketball to go swimming.
