Mallory, Chesley make big announcement for City Pools

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Some Cincinnati pools will stay open for an extra week this summer, extending the pools season until school starts.

Mayor Mark Mallory and Attorney Stan Chesley made the announcement on Wednesday afternoon at the Lincoln Pool on Linn Street.

The nine City pools that will stay open for the extra week are: the Otto Armleder Pool at Dunham, the Pleasant Ridge Pool, The Ryan Pool, the Evanston pool, the Lincoln Pool, the Mt. Washington Pool, the Hartwell Pool, the Dickman Pool and the Oakley Pool.

The pools were selected based upon their high attendance and geographic diversity.

Earlier this summer the Mayor, Chesley and Cincinnati Recreation Commission (CRC) Director Chris Bigham announced that the city will open 24 City Pools for a full 10-week swimming season lasting from June 4 through August 11.
