Atchison pool opening delayed for holiday weekend

(KAIR)--The opening of Atchison's municipal Lions Pool, timed annually with the Memorial Day Weekend, has been delayed.

A release from the City of Atchison says that while the pool normally opens on the Saturday prior to the holiday, “a combination of staffing and technical challenges” means that the opening of the pool will be delayed until Tuesday, May 30.

Once it opens, operating hours will remain the same as in previous years, with the cost of admission $1 per day.

Meanwhile, Atchison Public Works plans to activate the Independence Park splash pad, near the Atchison Riverfront, by Friday afternoon.

However, the City's other splash pad, located in the 400 block of Commercial Street, “requires additional maintenance before it can be activated.”
Details regarding the status of the delayed opening will be released as they become available.
