Lufkin Jones Pool is Open Again
Guess what….it’s going to be hot this weekend! This time of year we don’t really need a weather forecast do we? It gets to at least the mid 90’s every day and feels like 105 and that’s about all we need to know. That’s the forecast we’ll have again this weekend.
Time to hit the lake! Go fishing, swimming, and boating with Dad on Father’s Day weekend.
A Lufkin pool that had been shuttered for two years is open again too. In fact, it had it’s grand re-opening yesterday.
Lufkin’s Jones Pool was shut down because of limited life guards two years ago, and also faced some other limited seasons because of the shortage. The pool opened again yesterday after city leaders and community members got together to make it happen. The Angelina Citizen Chamber paid for the training of the four new lifeguards.
Jones Pool is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 2-7 p.m. and there’s no charge to swim.
Have a great weekend. And happy Father’s Day!
