Area Pools Preparing for Summer Openings

The City of Springfield’s six outdoor swimming pools are set to open for the Summer on Saturday.

A new city pool is opening in Mt. Vernon. The city says it is ADA compliant with a zero entry and lazy river. The previous pool was built more than 40 years ago, and needed to be replaced.

Nixa Parks and Rec staff have discovered a significant leak in the community pool at the X Center in McCauley Park, which will cause a delay in it’s opening. The city says that there is no estimate yet on how long it will take to make repairs, and the acquatics center will remain closed until the pool can be opened.
