Pool opening soon

Graham Boggan of Barrentine Pool works to clean Greenwood’s Eddie “Sonny” Brown Memorial Swimming Pool, at Avenue N and St. Charles Street, to get it ready for opening day. Fire Chief Marcus Banks, who oversees pool operations for the city, said he expects the pool to open within the next couple of weeks, although the exact date has yet to be determined. The city has hired one full-time civilian lifeguard to join the four or five firefighter lifeguards at the pool this summer. Banks said the pool usually operates Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with an occasional Saturday and runs through the summer months until the week before school resumes.
