On July 18, lightning struck a panel at the pool at Lido Beach. After closing for repairs, the pool is now open to the public again.
The Lido Pool reopened at 10 a.m. today, bringing an end to a two-week closure following a lightning strike.
The city closed the facility last month after lightning hit and damaged an electrical panel that controls the pool pumps and chemical levels in the water. City staff replaced the panel, and the city announced today the pool is open again.
The Lido Pool is located at 400 Benjamin Franklin Drive. The pool is open from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
