MOUNT GREENWOOD — The pool at Mount Greenwood Park will reopen Friday after a $98,000 overall to that included installing a new liner, according to a spokeswoman for the Chicago Park District.
Jessica Maxey-Faulkner said Monday the public pool at 3724 W. 111th St. also had repairs done to its gutter system and filter room. Concrete work was also completed along the fence surrounding the pool, she said.
The work took about two months to complete, and the new liner is expected to last 15 to 20 years, Faulkner said.
"The improvements were necessary because the pool did not previously have a liner, which led to pool leaks over time and need to refill the pool often," she said via email.
The Chicago Park District manages 49 outdoor pools and 28 indoor pools. It also operates 14 pools belonging to Chicago Public Schools that offer community programs, according to its website.
The park district's outdoor pools are all expected to open on Friday, another official said.
Most pools have accessibility features such as ADA stairs, pool lifts and zero depth entry. At a few locations with pool lifts, direct wheelchair access to the pool area might still be limited, the website says.
