Two weeks after being the site of a tragic accident, the Pella Aquatic Center is set to re-open. Pella Administrative Services Director Jenny Hesseltine tells KNIA/KRLS that the outdoor Aquatic Center will open Wednesday for regular summer hours – which are weekdays from 1-8pm, Saturday from 1-6pm, and Sunday from 1-5pm. Pella’s Indoor Pool opened for normal summer hours Tuesday afternoon.

Hesseltine adds that the closing of the swimming facilities in Pella has, no doubt, impacted those who purchased passes for the swimming season, saying that the City is working to rectify the situation with pass holders.

Prior to the Aquatic Center opening Wednesday afternoon, a time of memoriam and prayer will be held for the two teenagers from Kansas City who drowned on July 14th during a Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp event. The informal memorial service will begin at 12:45pm.
