The Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District is announcing that the opening of Spring Lake Pool has been moved from June 1st to Saturday, June 7th because of scheduled work not completed due to poor weather this spring.
Superintendent Elizabeth Sosa said that lower than normal temperatures and rain have slowed down the sandblasting and painting of the pools. Once painted, the paint needs to cure for several days. After the paint cures, filling and heating the pool takes approximately 5 days.
When the pool officially opens for the season, in addition to all of the current amenities, season pass holders will be able to enjoy special season pass holder evening swims on Saturday and Sunday, June 14 & 15 from 6-9pm. The Rochelle Rays Swim Team will begin practice on Monday, June 9. Practice times for 11 to 18 year olds is 7:45am-9:15am and 10 & under or new swimmers practice 9:20am to 10:20am. The Parent Meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 11 at 6:30pm at the Spring Lake Marina.
