YMCA Indoor Pool Reopens

After nearly five years, the YMCA of Tyler has reopened its indoor swimming pool.

With renovations complete, children and adults enjoyed the first day of the pool being reopened. The YMCA pool is the only publicly owned indoor pool and they offer a swim team, lap swim, aquatic exercise and swim lessons.

"It's been a long journey but a great one now, because we can offer a variety of acquatic programs to members of people in the community," said CEO Stuart Gilpin. "We had to make some changes to the pool itself to get it up to state regulations. We had to put some extra drains in there. We have also added a new chlorination system. We made it into a saline pool"

That's not all. Tthe YMCA plans to add a dehumidifier and some baffles to help with the noise level.
