Swimming season is almost upon us in La Crosse, with most of the city beaches and pools to open officially in June.
But one pool which has been closed for a few years is expected to be back in business by July.
Park director Jay Odegaard took supporters of Memorial Pool on a tour of the re-construction site this weekend.
Odegaard says crews will have to watch for rain, to keep a special type of concrete being used in the pool from getting too wet and changing color.
A group of Memorial Pool supporters has raised 76% of its $500,000 goal for helping fund the reopening of the pool, which was originally built in the 1930s.
The Ho-Chunk Nation presented a check for $30,000 to pool supporters on Saturday, during a neighborhood open house on Campbell Road.
This week, city leaders will announce their plans to operate the beaches without lifeguards for this summer.
