Is the South Park Wading Pool going to be closed for the summer around Park Ridge? There's a sign by the entrance saying that "Due to a shortage in staffing, the South Park Wading Pool is closed for the season. " The season doesn't start until the end of the month either, but the water is currently running. Does anyone know what the story is?

Following. Would be majorly bummed if it's closed for the summer.

I highly doubt it. It's probably a sign left from last year, end of the season.

I think we all would have heard about it. Guessing the sign was put up last year when the majority of kids went back to school and there weren't enough guards.

That sign is from last season. Sorry for the confusion. We need to take it down.

That makes sense. I could take it down on my way out of the park, assuming that's ok for me to do.

Yesterday they were cleaning it when my kids and I were in the park. Today I actually saw water on and splashing! Hope they were testing it for upcoming opening
