Four Cincinnati public pools to reopen

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Due to fundraising efforts around the community, it was announced Wednesday that four public pools were to reopen in Cincinnati.

The fundraising efforts of Stanley Chelsey raised enough money to reopen three Cincinnati Public Pools; the pools in Filson, College Hill and LeBlond will all reopen as soon as they are staffed.

The pool in Spring Grove Village will reopen thanks to fundraising efforts within that community. It will reopen Thursday June 10.

10 Cincinnati Public Pools were closed at the beginning of the summer due to the Cincinnati budget crisis. There are now six that are still closed.
