City opens doors on renovated city pool
Mitchell County found itself with plenty to smile about last week – and a few feet of cool, clear water to cool off in – as the City of Colorado City showed off the renovations at the municipal swimming pool with a re-opening ceremony on Friday, June 4.
More than three dozen residents from throughout the county attended a special re-opening gala that featured a special ribbon-cutting ceremony. The ceremony showcased the improvements made at the facility over the past year.
The city, with the aid of various grants, made numerous upgrades to the pool facility over the past six months, including making repairs to the pool itself, which was closed last summer. In addition to t repairs to the pool, the city is also renovating the restroom facilities, as well as the playground area adjacent to the pool.
Work on the restrooms is ongoing, thanks to delays caused by recent rains. City officials expect the work on the facility to be completed soon.
Due to the costs involved with the renovations, the city announced recently that the usage fees associated with the pool would be increasing this summer. A single-day pool pass, for instance, will be $5 per person, while a season pass for an individual will increase to $80. Additionally, the cost for parties using the city pool will also see a slight increase. Slots of 1 ½ hours are available for $150. Up to 4 ½ hours can be reserved at a single time.
The city pool staff will be offering swimming lessons this summer for area youths from 9-10 a.m., as well as from 10-11 a.m. The cost for the lessons is $60 per individual.
