Kingwood Pool to Remain Closed for Summer

Posted: Updated:

Summer time is all about playing outside, sunshine and swimming but residents in Kingwood might have to plan differently.

The Kingwood pool will not open this summer.

The City Council said last year the pool lost more than $20,000 over the season and only averaged 17 people per day.

"There's tennis courts, basketball courts and there's batting cages and a park there that will all be opened. The therapy pool that the hospital uses it still opened. That won't be affected. We just need to reevaluated, we're just dumping money into the pool," said Jean-Manuel Guillot, of the Kingwood City Council.

The money that the city will save from keeping the pool closed will be used to make repairs on at the Civic Center.
