Annual Maintenance Will Close Lions Pool for About Three Weeks

Lions Pool, an indoor facility owned and operated by the City of Yakima, will be closed for a little more than three weeks during August so that needed annual maintenance on the pool can be performed.

To accommodate the work, Lions Pool will be closed from Monday, August 8th through Sunday, August 28th.

Yakima Parks & Recreation crews will spruce up several parts of the facility during the closure.  General maintenance and repairs will be completed during the closure and some areas of the facility will be repainted.

“We ask the users of Lions Pool to be patient while we get the needed annual maintenance taken care of,” said Yakima Parks & Recreation Manager Ken Wilkinson.  “There is never a perfect time to close the pool for annual maintenance, but this time of year tends to be the slowest at Lions.  So now is a good time to get the work done,” said Wilkinson.
