Pool opening at YMCA in Ocean Springs tomorrow
After two months of renovations, YMCA’s pool in Ocean Springs is finally opening tomorrow at 5 a.m.
The renovation cost $145,000 to do. In the pool, it has a brand new coat and seal along the concrete pool. The tiles that were coming undone are now fixed. Along the outside, the pool has brand new paint and light fixtures.
The sauna also got new light fixtures and the hot tub also got a new seal and coat which is actually open to the public now.
The grand opening will take place Tuesday at 5 a.m. along with a couple of surprises for the public. Aquatics Director Mandy Clark said, “I know they have been patiently and eagerly waiting because the renovations took about a month longer than expected. I know they are going to be super excited to get back in. I know folks that have bad knees, bad joints, they are just so ready to get back in the water.”
To use the pool, you do have to be a member. For more information on how to become a member and the pool schedule, go to mgcymca.org.
