MARION (WSIL) -- The Marion Park District Aquatic Center will be closed for Summer 2020.
In a statement posted on the Aquatic Center's official Facebook page, concerns are expressed regarding the health and safety of patrons and employees. The pool traditionally opens over Memorial Day weekend.
Governor Pritzker's Restore Illinois Plan would allow groups of 10 or less individuals to gather with social distancing and face coverings. But pool management says it is impossible to obtain this regulation in the Aquatic Center setting.
Park officials say , "We are disappointed that these measures must be taken and look forward to the day when we can open all of our facilities and playgrounds".
