Major renovation needed for pool at Blossman Family YMCA in Ocean Springs
The pool at the Blossman Family YMCA in Ocean Springs has been serving the area for more than 40 years and is in need of a major renovation.
The pool is in need of replastering, retiling, and painting. CEO Jara Miller says they are investing more than $100,000 in the project.
She tells us the pool gets a lot of use, so the wear and tear are part of the use.
Miller also says the YMCA is partnering with Singing River Healthplex to offer ‘Y’ members an alternative while the pool is closed.
When the overhaul is complete, it will be like a brand-new facility. Miller said, “With our renovations, we are so excited because this will enable us to better serve our community and our members; because we’re here for all ages and life stages and this will help us do just that. It is a renovation that is overdue. By the time that we are done, it will be a brand-new pool.”
The pool area will be closed November 15th for the renovations. They expect to reopen in December.
