The pool is back
The sun was shining on Saturday, March 31 when the Molalla Aquatic Center reopened its doors to the public after sitting closed for more than three years. They kicked off with a free Easter Egg swim and open swim that day.
"After so long of it being closed and it being such a fight, I'm really glad that it's open now," said Blake, a youth who swam Saturday. "So, I'm really excited. It was really fun and everyone was really nice."
