      POOL ANNOUNCEMENT                   

Due to unforeseen mechanical problems with our newly installed sand filter system, we anticipate opening day for the Rush City Aquatic Center will be MONDAY, JUNE 12th at 12:30 PM. 
We are excited for the 2023 swim season and apologize for the inconvenience this causes.
