Before I tell you when it is actually opening, maybe find a piece of wood to knock on because the last time it was announced, a part broke and everything got delayed again.

Silver Lake Pool in Rochester Announces New Re-Opening Date

In my inbox this afternoon was a little bit of happy news for the Rochester, Minnesota community!  The City of Rochester Parks & Recreation Department will have the pool ready to enjoy starting on June 30th! 

The delay in opening was due to vandalism that ended up destroying the main drain cover.  Earlier this week, the pool was supposed to open but unfortunately, the chemical tray was broken and opening was delayed once again.

“We thank the community for their patience as we waited for and then installed this important piece of pool equipment, and we look forward to opening Silver Lake Pool for all to enjoy.” - Recreation Supervisor Ben Boldt
