New diving board and lounge chairs at Forest Park pool

Monday, August 1, 2005

Just in time for the return of really hot weather, the Brazil City Parks and Recreation Department has acquired a new diving platform and lounge chairs for the Forest Park swimming pool.

Due to an insurance report earlier this year, the parks board was required to remove the two diving boards at the pool. The boards were originally installed in 1978 with the pool.

Working together, city officials, park board members and representatives from the city's insurance company arrived at the solution of installing a single diving board between the locations of the original diving boards.

Thanks to Wal-Mart, the pool also has 14 new lounge chairs.

"The lounge chairs will add character to the pool and comfort for pool attendees," Mayor Tom Arthur said.

Forest Park pool is open seven days a week from noon to 5 p.m. and offers senior/adult swim 11-11:45 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and water aerobics 11-11:45 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

For more information regarding fees and services, call 446-2411.
