Rededication of Douglass Park & Pool
The ceremony, held in conjunction with the annual Juneteenth celebration, will begin at 1 p.m. on June 16 and pool admission will be free from 1-1:30 p.m. After 1:30 p.m. admission will be 10 cents for everyone. Games will begin at 2 p.m.
Repairs were made to the pool shell, mechanical systems, gutter system, plumbing, and bathhouse. Improvements include a climbing wall for the pool and basketball courts, lights, and walkways for the park.
Douglass is the only city pool to have the climbing wall, which allows swimmers to climb up and then fall back into the water.
