POINT PLEASANT — Harmon Park Pool has reopened.
According to Mayor Brian Billings, the city’s only municipal swimming pool opened over the weekend. The pool’s opening was delayed by a major leak which was later repaired. Billings said over the weekend the repair seems to have made a difference with no leaks in the pump room and the pool’s water level staying steady.
With temperatures reaching the 90’s, this seems like the perfect time to reopen the city pool which will have the following operating hours: noon - 5 p.m., Monday-Saturday; 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., Sunday.
Admission is $4 for adults; $3 for children ages five - 17; $1 for children five and under. Prices for season passes are: $140 for a family up to four (each additional family member is $10); $70 for individual child; $85 for individual adult.
A pool party can be scheduled on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. and on Tuesday and Thursday from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. The prices for a pool party are as follows: $130 for one-40 people; $175 for 41-90 people; $250 for 90 people or more.
Swimming lessons will also be held in two-week sessions and are set for 11 a.m. -11:30 a.m. on June 18, July 2, July 13 and July 16. Contact Teri Schauer at 304-674-3121 to schedule lessons.
There will also be adult water aerobics, a.k.a. CardioFunk H2O, from 6 p.m. - 7 p.m., on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Contact Amber Pursley at 304-593-3616 for more information.

Other repairs made at the pool before its reopening included an electrical system upgrade. Other more minor leaks still exist but in order to completely fix these, concrete would have to be removed which would have caused the reopening to be further delayed.
Billings has said these other minor leaks will be addressed after the pool closes for the season though he added with the major leak repaired, the pool will be in better shape than it’s been in years.
