Waimea Swimming Pool Re-opens

WAIMEA, Kauai (KHNL) -- The Waimea War Memorial Swimming Pool will be reopened this Saturday after undergoing a major renovation.

"The contractor did a great job on this landmark facility. I think our Westside residents will be pleased," said Mayor Bryan Baptiste. "Now they can enjoy activities at one of their favorite places again."

One of the activities held at the pool for decades was an annual swim meet.

"We are looking forward to having the annual Ed Ho Memorial Swim Meet at the newly-renovated Waimea swimming pool," said Eric Nordmeier, president of the West Kauai Lions Club.

Nordmeier said that the Lions Club and other community groups also plan to pitch-in with painting the Waimea swimming pool.

"We want to help with the revitalization of the pool," said Nordmeier.

The normal hours of operation at the Waimea swimming pool are:

Tuesday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 4:30 p.m. The pool is closed on Mondays and holidays.
