Recreation Director Provides Pool Update At Park District Monthly Meeting

Taylorville Park District board met for their monthly meeting Monday. 


Board members approved April’s minutes, the treasurer’s report, bills, and the employee reports. 


Recreational Director Bailey Hancock gave an overview the Manners Park pool, which could could re-open as early as this weekend. 

Hancock says the pool committee is in the feasibility study phase of a new pool, which could be quite expensive. There is a pool committee meeting this Thursday at the Manners Park office. 

If you are hoping for a pool party this summer – act fast. Reservation availability is already scarce.

Hancock says the pool is turning 60 years old this year. While a bit old for a pool, she wants to use this opportunity to fund-raise for a new pool.

Mark your calendar for the Taylorville Pool’s 60th Anniversary celebration, Sunday, July 24th from noon to 5 p.m.


The next park board meeting is set for Monday, June 27th.
