MARBLE FALLS — Swimmers won’t have to wait too much longer to cool down in the Marble Falls city pool at Lakeside Park.

Workers last week began repairs on the Marble Falls pool in Lakeside Park, but the opening was delayed when the surface had to be re-plastered. Officials said the pool should be ready by June 2. Staff photo by Connie Swinney

"We’re shooting to open (June 2) at 1 p.m.," Parks and Recreation Director Robert Moss said.

The pool originally was scheduled to be ready by May 28, but additional repair work delayed the opening.

Staff members drained the pool to clean it in preparation for the summer.

But when they took a closer look, Moss said workers had to re-plaster the pool, which meant crew members had to work through the Memorial Day holiday.
The estimated cost for the repairs is $25,000-30,000, he said.
The pool is located at 306 Buena Vista Drive.
