The Midlothian Pool has 3 pools in total at this, 2 of the 3 pools are NOT in working order one was even shut down by the health department. Midlothian is NOT fully refunding money to parents of children and babies. The two pools shut down and not working are the pools for children and babies. The pool sales reps should have known to let buyers know in advance instead of bate-and-switching the sales and taking 50% of our money paid! I am very unhappy with whoever it is that is in charge of refunding at this moment.

Google Midlothian Park District and read. The folks that run the pool are in there. Please post your experience.

The board is very active in appyling for grants. If there is one out there for pools, they would be filling out the paper work, but one thing to keep in mind. When you get a grant( or anything from the goverment) you have to spend it on what they say and not always what you would like to do.

For the 5,000 time on these boards...and sorry if you are just seeing this for the first time...but Memorial Park, Splish Splash Pool...and every other park in the town of Midlothian is owned and operated by the Midlothian Park District and NOT the Village of Midlothian....two very separate and distinct taxing bodies.

And when you think about it again. Apartments in the area, people with small houses/lawns, or EVEN a lower income than yours who can't afford a pool, ever think they don't mind it? Just because you don't like it doesnt mean it's actually bad. And there is this new invention out called chlorine. What it does is clean the water of bad things like piss spit and boogers.(really? boogers?)
