Thursday December 4, 2008
Metro Parks will be closing the therapy pool at the Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center from Dec. 19-21 to make improvements to the pool’s drain system.
The therapy pool will be open for regular hours on Thursday, Dec. 18 but will be closed on Friday, Dec. 19; Saturday, Dec. 20; and Sunday, Dec. 21. The closure of the therapy pool will not impact the operation of the main pool or Mary T.’s fitness center, both of which will be open for regular hours on those three days.
Crews will drain the pool Thursday night, make the improvements on Friday, fill it back up with water Friday night and balance the chemicals and temperature Saturday and Sunday. The cost of the improvements is approximately $10,000.
