Goodlettsville's only city pool will be closing at the end of the summer.

I am very disappointed that they are closing Pleasant Green pool. I have been going there since I was eight yrs old, I now take my children there. It is a great pool it is resonable pay to get in, very clean and the atmosphere is wonderful.I cannot believe they are closing,where will I take them next summer? Nash.Shores is too crowded and the prices for getting in and having a snack is crazy, it is a very nice place to go but it is really far to drive to . I just hope someone out there feels the same way I do about the pool closing, I think it is very sad that they cannot find some way to keep it open.

I agree with you completely. While I think that it does have its downfalls (smoking is allowed around children), the benefits far outweigh its shortcomings. I have to wonder...what efforts have been made to avoid closure? Have they really tried to save it? This will be bad news to many in this community. There are no other pool options around. There are several schools/summer camp programs that come there every week. As a day to day place to go to in the summer-P.G. fits the bill!

I went to that pool 50 years ago and loved it. I remember hearing Elvis Presley singing "Return to Sender".

It seems like the City could try to enlist taxpayers help, or at least the people that have been fortunate enough over the past 60 years to try to help keep it open.

I hear that it is because certain people are sneaking in without paying and causing a lot of trouble why they are there. This happens every where they go and no one wants to be around them because they do not know how to act therefor the business has to close the doors. Maybe one day these people will learn how to act but with the majority of them only having one parent and living around all the rest of them I don't think that time will ever come.

We only go during the week (2-3x's each week)and there is never any questionable behavior going on. However, in the past I did feel that weekends drew a different crowd and we do not go on the weekends, so I can't say whether that is still true or not. The lady that runs it and the lifequards are VERY good about being in charge and watching over things.***There is supposed to be a meeting at City Hall on July 14th for citizens to voice their opposition against closing. You can also call the mayor or commissioners to voice your opinion. I do not believe there has been an effort made to save the pool. It seems that others have their own intentions for the money that is needed and just don't care whether we have a pool or not. Be sure to make your opinion known next week or the pool may be history!

people who don't want to go to the pool anymore should pay to keep it open for the few that do?

I hope we can have enough support from people Thursday night at the meeting at city hall at 6:30. Please show your support for this pool. Our kids and family need a place for exercise in the summer. While I love Moss Wright Park hot days are well spent at our lovely Pleasant Green Pool. I personally would be willing to pay a higher price to get in the pool if it kept it open. Have they even searched for general contractors to donate part of their work to bring the expense down? It would be a great advertisement for a General Contractor. Think of the rewards.
