Public pool in Palisade gets upgrade

PALISADE, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- It sure doesn't feel like the unofficial start to summer, but local swimming pools will soon be a popular destination as temperatures warm up.

Palisade's public pool has undergone some significant upgrades to the interior. The pool has been painted, cleaned and features new installations.

The pool area will soon offer new benches and lockers. But they won't arrive or be installed until after Memorial Day Weekend.

“It's been a lot of work to get us to this point now with all the interior stuff taking place, it’s been a huge undertaking. To finally have our pool up and running, it’s great,” said Troy Ward, Events and Programs Coordinator, Town of Palisade.

The Palisade pool will officially open in one week, on May 31.
