Forest Park Pool, including Bath Houses

As the city’s largest and most popular pool prior to its closing in 2010, reopening the Forest Park Pool complex has been a priority for Councilman Joel Burns and others. It is good that a private citizen has offered to fund a planning study for this historic and culturally-rich summer destination; however, it will take as much as $3 million to repair and restore this public gem. The Olympic-scaled Forest Park pool creates opportunity for all citizens to excel in swimming.
