The pool is designed to accommodate all ages. Classes such as senior citizens water aerobics and swimming and diving lessons will offer citizens exercise opportunities. The City also plans to keep the pool property opened longer than a standard swim season and use the pool deck as a space for events such as movie nights at the pool.
The Sullivan City Pool is expected to draw visitors in from across the region and beyond by being an outdoor recreation center for all. Community pools are known to be a hub for various communities throughout regions and even outside a region to come together in one central space. Just as the pool did for 54 years, the Sullivan City Pool is expected to do just that. Citizens from the region and beyond will bask in the summertime days and have the opportunity to host unique dinner parties on the pool deck.
Many people and initiatives have been an integral part in reopening the pool. A marketing and fundraising campaign called “Splash Sullivan” headed the efforts by working alongside other organizations and businesses throughout West Central Indiana. The committee is made up of the mayor and his team, along with non-profit, municipal, and business leaders.
