Folwell Park wading pool: opening is delayed

This spring, a water line repair was completed to resolve the major issue that resulted in the pool being closed for much of the 2018 season. Unfortunately, due to a broken filter and related leak discovered this week, the planned May 25 opening has been delayed.

MPRB staff are currently working to fix the filter and leak and proceed with required testing. Barring any additional repair needs, it’s anticipated that the pool will be open by June 8.
