DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — The Waterloo Pool in Denison welcomed swimmers back on Friday.

The pool was closed for five weeks due to maintenance; now repairs are needed to make sure the building will operate efficiently.

City staff is now working on a design proposal to revitalize Waterloo Pool. 

"Waterloo Pool is a special place," said Justin Eastwood, Director of Parks and Recreation. "It is the pool in the Texoma area. We're just enthusiastic that our leadership has decided to invest in this wonderful feature, and we look forward to continuing the top-notch services we have here all the time."

Once a design proposal is finalized, maintenance should take six to eight months.
