Plans to open Glenwood Pool
Columbus City Councilman Zachary Klein sponsored emergency legislation at City Council June 20 allowing Columbus Recreation and Parks to open two additional swimming pools.
The pools being targeted to open are Glenwood Pool, 1925 W. Broad St., and Maryland Pool located at Saunders Park, 1380 Atcheson St.
Klein, with help from Councilwoman Priscilla Tyson, chair of the Finance Committee, identified available dollars in the Cultural Services Fund to open the pools this summer.
“Like recreation centers and playgrounds, pools are an important part of the fabric of our strong and safe neighborhoods,” Klein said. “Pools provide children and families a safe place to play and remain physically active this summer. The community has asked for additional programming to be made available, and City Council is responding.”
The legislation means the city will have a total of six pools open this summer, including:
- Dodge Pool, 545 Sullivant Ave.
- Marion Franklin Pool, 2699 Lockbourne Road
- Tuttle Pool, 240 W Oakland Ave.
- Windsor Pool, 1300 Windsor Ave.
