WAYNETOWN, Ind. (WLFI) – A Montgomery County community pool that has been closed for three years is set to reopen this month.

The Waynetown Community Pool, which originally opened in the late 1950s, has been renovated following an anonymous $500,000 donation. The donation announcement was made in April 2013.

The new pool includes a water slide, splash pad, bath house and a community room.

It is scheduled to open to the public on May 24. However, the Waynetown Council said the public can tour the new facility and buy discounted season passes during an open house set for 2 p.m. Sunday, May 18.

The total cost of the project was nearly $1 million.
