Due to a variety of unique factors it will not be feasible to open the New Concord Area Pool to the public for the 2020 summer season.
In 2019 the Village of New Concord was awarded a NatureWorks grant to make major improvements at the New Concord Area Pool complex. These improvements include a replacement of the damaged retention wall, new ADA compliant access from the parking lot to the pool deck, construction of a 2nd pavilion and a sand volleyball court. Contractors, staff and volunteers will be busy this summer and fall getting things ready for a grand re-opening in 2021!
The decision to close the pool also factored in mandated requirements from the Ohio Department of Health for public pool operation during the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of our pool patrons, staff and community partners is a top priority to the Village of New Concord. With so many unknowns at this time closing the pool is the most responsible course of action.
We understand that this decision may put a damper on summertime plans and we apologize for any inconvenience. However, we cannot wait to show everyone our exciting transformation when the pool opens up next summer. Follow us on Facebook for updates @NewConcordPool, @VillageofNewConcord, @NCAARD.
