Should have happened over the Memorial Day weekend. The park district pools at Ridgeland Common and Rehm always open on Memorial Day. And this year we had the hot weather that would have made it a treat.

But good ol' COVID put the kibosh on that fun.

The park district has announced the pools will not open pending further guidance from the state. Further darkening the picture, park officials said they suspended pool opening maintenance prep and training of staff.

Meanwhile in Forest Park, the park district officially cancelled its pool season outright.
