SHAWNEE, Kan. - Pool season is almost here!
Across the metro, crews have been making repairs and getting pools ready to open in time for Memorial Day.
Crews in Shawnee spent the day at Thomas A. Soetaert Aquatic Center refurbishing slides, repainting the lazy river and repairing a fiberglass shark in the children's pool.
Employees that will staff the pools are also being trained.
"We're pretty excited about this season it's a lot of work making it look brand new and like it just opened" aquatics specialist Sean Keenan said.
