Following a brief closure, the local "watering hole" in Cresent Park has re-opened. 

Monday afternoon, the City of Moose Jaw Parks and Rec Department were forced to announce a short shutdown of the facility due to water clarity issues. 

City manager Jim Puffalt explained that there was a mechanical failure of the filtering units.

"Clarity of the water wasn't good enough to be open, we believed, so we shut it down, let the filter do its work, and we're ready to go again."

Puffalt went on to say, during the heatwave, he's pleased to have other options available for Moose Javians. 

"Along with having a couple of pools and a bunch of spray parks, there (are) good opportunities for people in the summer, when it's nice and hot to use city facilities. We're glad that we're able to not (just) have one single pool."

Tuesday, the Phyllis Dewar Outdoor Pool invited swimmers back to participate in regular programming

All outdoor spray parks and the outdoor pool - often referred to as the "Natatorium", are expected to remain open through the Labour Day long weekend.
