Camp Fire kids and everyone else in the Wichita Falls area are going to have to wait an extra week to take their first big splash at Harrell Park.
Construction on the new pool is running behind schedule, its opening day is being pushed back a week to Saturday, June 2.
Bettye Ricks with Camp Fire said there are just a few more finishing touches on the new pool that need to be complete and they’re wanting to make sure they get it right.
Ricks said everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the pool next on June 2 and admission is free that day.
Day camp will begin on Monday, June 4.
The last pool in Harrell Park lasted around 30 years before ground was broken on the new pool on Dec. 15, 2017.
