Farmer City Pool Finally Opens Saturday

Farmer City residents and those in the surrounding areas have anxiously been awaiting the opening of the renovated Farmer City pool.


City Manager for the City of Farmer City, Sue McLaughlin indicates the pool opens for the season Saturday under management by the Clinton YMCA.



The last few years have been somewhat frustrating for Farmer City officials and the community. McLaughlin indicates last summer they were never able to open the pool because of a shortage of lifeguards.



Adding to the frustration was the fact just two summers ago, the City invested a million dollars to renovate the pool. Reflecting, McLaughlin realizes it has been a pretty long three years.



For those that have never been to the Farmer City pool, McLaughlin explains it is an 'L' shaped pool and it has a shallow end, a few zero entries, and a slide and diving board. Additionally, the Y is going to be bringing some programming with them this summer.



The Farmer City pool will be open daily from 11 am to 7 pm including holidays like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. 


McLaughlin encourages anyone wanting more information to find the City of Farmer City Facebook page, the City website, or the Clinton YMCA website for more on the pool and its activities this summer.
