City pools are practically closed

Glenn Hall Pool
Glenn Hall Pool, by Midtown Grid user Julia

The bathroom closure announcement is probably the most unfortunate and glaring change in the city’s gutted rec budget, but I’m really disappointed that almost all the pools will now only be open 3-5 PM. There will be no city pools open after 5pm, and several pools — including my beloved Glenn Hall pool — will be closed to recreational swimming entirely. The changes take effect Monday. Oh well, at least the kids can play in the sprinklers, right? Oh wait.

  2. Why is it even a question let me see more sheriff deputies or police or a swimming pool open is there even a debate come on there have to be priorities


  3. I remember working at the pool as a cashier a couple years ago. We got a whole lot of kids from the surrounding neighborhoods and summer programs. Sad that it’s become one less place for them to go, especially during the summer.
