The Splash Cove Pool at Memorial Park in Williamsport is one of the pools in the area getting ready to open.

The swimming pool, under repair since spring 2021, is finally in the final phase of renovation.

“The crew are here. They are now starting to repair and install the new pool liner. … It all depends on (the) weather. They are here, we are looking forward to the opening of the pool. Mayor Derek Slaughter said in a video on the Sun-Gazette Facebook page.
