We went recently and the outside pool was closed for several hours for "contamination." Is there a way to post online if the pools are closed, so we know before we come? I checked online that day (after the fact) but saw no notification.

Hi! The director of CRPA said a child had an "accident" and, per Cherokee County Environmental Health regulations, they had to close the pool for a minimum of four hours.

I am so excited about the aquatic center! I needed somewhere to go for water exercises. Thank you!

I sure hope no one has an "accident" when we come. That's money we don't normally spend as times are hard, and we have a long drive across the county. It would be nice to get alerts somehow if its closed for 4 hrs.
