Kiddie Pool Re-Opens

Posted: Updated:

Yesterday was certainly a hot one and many found themselves to the Minot public pool for a chance to cool off.

For the first time in two years the kiddy pool was open to the public and with the heat wave yesterday it couldn't come at a better time.

A little after 12 p-m yesterday, a slew of young children were able to enjoy the tiny pool.

Because of the 2011 flood, extensive damage was done to the children's pool.

The entire bottom of the pool needed to be cut out, re-plumbed and then put back together.

Initial expectations were for it to be complete sometime in late June.

The Executive Director of Minot Parks says he is just happy the pool is now finished because it adds a different dimension to the Minot public pool.

(Ron Merritt, Executive Director, Minot Park District) "A lot of times parents will bring their small children in that area when the older children are swimming in the main pool so it gives an area for the small children to have some fun."

Merritt says pool attendance has been up since it opened and does not expect to see a drop off at all during the remainder of summer.
