Locals return to Bangor pools Monday after holiday weekend closures
After a weekend of lousy weather, folks in the Bangor area were able to enjoy the city’s public pools once again today.
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The Beth Pancoe Aquatic Center opened at 1 p.m., Monday after being closed this weekend due to the weather.
The pool that features two water slides was busy because of the nice weather.
The Fourth is often one of the busiest days for the pool, but the weather isn’t the only factor in closing a local pool.
They’re also experiencing a lifeguard shortage at the aquatic center and at the smaller Dakin pool.
”Weather and people’s summer schedules and whatever things are happening that pool would likely shut down for the day so we can move people to this larger facility here,” said Logan Christian, a lifeguard at Beth Pancoe Pool.
