Due to a profound leak at Mary Gibbard Pool and the time frame for repair, the Park's Board has voted to close the pool for the remainder of the 2016 season. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the closure of the pool, but we are fortunate to have Merrifield Pool to support our residents and non-residents needs for swimming.
All season pass holders may use their pass at Merrifield Pool.
