Falls City Pool Open for Business on Saturday
FALLS CITY – The water has been poured, the lifeguards have been trained, everything is set up for the Falls City Aquatic Center to open on Saturday.
The pool, located on the north edge of town, will open this Saturday and remain open until Labor Day.
Manager of the pool Roger Lampe has been hard at work training life guards and getting everything ready for opening day. He says he’ll get some relief on Saturday.
“Tomorrow, I guess it’s just finally (exhales), I can take a breath,” says Lampe.
Fans of the aquatic center will be glad to hear that all the popular features of the pool are returning including the two slides, diving board and the rope area.
Lampe says one of the unique things about the Falls City pool is that it attracts people from many different area communities and labels it as a destination location in southeast Nebraska.
“You go out into our parking lot anytime of the day, and you do see license plates from Missouri, Kansas and all the surrounding counties,” says Lampe.
And an excuse to get out of the house in the dead heat of summer.
“Younger families come back to town to visit their parents or grandparents, rather than just sitting around the house, they’ve got somewhere to go,” says Lampe.
