Lions Pool, the City of Yakima’s indoor aquatics facility, was reopened at 6:00 am today following a temporary closure yesterday (Thursday, May 10th) while an emergency repair was completed to the pool’s main recirculation pump.
“We thank the loyal users of Lions Pool for their patience while the facility was temporarily closed for the pump repair,” said Parks & Recreation Manager Ken Wilkinson. “The recirculation pump is a critical piece of the system that keeps Lions Pool operating. We’re pleased that the repair was able to be completed as quickly as it was,” said Wilkinson.
Lions Pool is the most heavily used of the City’s two public pools (the other being Franklin Pool). The facility is used for recreation, swimming and diving competitions, therapeutic purposes, etc. It is open year ‘round, with the exception of periodic closures for maintenance or other repair projects.
