Roberts Park pool closing on school days

By BRANDON TOWNSEND - btownsend@newsexaminer.com

This year’s summer season for the Roberts Park swimming pool is coming to an end.

Beginning Wednesday, the pool will be closed throughout the week. The pool will be open only on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

According to Jessica Faw, Connersville Parks and Recreation superintendent, the pool will be available for special occasions such as reserved parties, but all available dates for the remainder of the season have been reserved.

“Attendence has been pretty steady,” said Faw about this year’s pool season. “With the weather being like it has been, we haven’t had to close too often. We lucked out this year with the weather.”

No special deals are being offered before the pool closes. Access is still $2 for kids and $3 for adults.

According to Faw, the Parks and Recreation Department has recently met with a representative of Spear Corporation, a commercial swimming pool firm in Roachdale, to discuss ideas of potentially expanding the pool area. There are no firm plans to do so.

Faw is uncertain what, if any, additions might be made to the pool.
