The City Parks, Recreation, and Civic Facilities Department announced that the Aquatic Park will be closed Wednesday.

According to a press release, due to a situation where loose feces was discovered in the pool, the Aquatic Park is closed until the pool water, filters, and equipment can be properly sanitized and the chemicals and ph levels are at safe levels for people to enter the water. The incident occurred Tuesday evening and the pool was cleared and closed immediately.

While the Aquatic Park is closed, Krug Pool will be operating on their regular schedule, opening at noon and closing at 6 p.m.  Entrance is $3.00 for 8 and under and $4.00 for all others.

The Parks Department requests that anyone who does not feel well, has a child or children that don’t feel well, has been exposed to an illness, or knows that they are coming down with the illness, postpone their trip to the pool so that it can remain open for the public to enjoy.

According to the Parks Department, it is also important that proper swim wear be worn at the pool, including swimmer diapers for children who are not toilet trained.  Swimmer diapers are available at the front desk for those who do not have their own.

It is anticipated that the pool will be open at 11 a.m. Thursday unless something unforeseen occurs.
