Recreation Memorial Park Pool could reopen today

Heavy smoke over the area prompted the city of Grass Valley to shut down the summer recreation program and the open swim session at the Memorial Park Pool on Thursday. “With the hot weather, we want to make the pool available to the public,” said Recreation Manager Sandy Jacobson said, who was working to shorten the shifts of the young lifeguards. She also was looking for ways to provide cool drinking water; drinking fountain pipes go over the top of the pool building. A recorded phone message saying whether the pool will reopen will be posted at 9 a.m. Call 477-4650.
