Kennett, MO--They’re soaking up the sun and having fun doing it in
The center boasts an Olympic sized pool with a unique salt water liquid, a separate child pool, and a splash pool with a separate underground pool. It was built on land donated from a local businessman and organizers were overjoyed they were able to finish the project before the Memorial Day Weekend.
Crow grew up in Kennett and says some of her fondest memories were of heading to the public swimming pool with friends. “I used to head there at seven each morning.” Crow said. That pool closed down nearly twenty years ago and the community has been without a public pool ever since.
