The city of Medford unveils its new swimming pool facility. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held earlier this evening at the pool, giving kids a chance to try it out.
Construction on the public pool started back in August, costing over $800,000 to complete.
Michael Bub, chairman of the pool committee, said, "As you see people are walking by the pool, standing by the pool. I mean we are so excited to do this for the Medford community."
Basketball hoops, a climbing wall, and a ten foot slide were all added to the pool. Bub said the goal was to expand the pool, instead of just fixing it.
Ceremonial plaques were handed out to those who donated money for the construction. And swim bags were given to those who bought a season pass in honor of 125 years of Medford.
Bub says rates for the pool won't change. It's still $3 for adults and $2.50 for kids.
