Don’t go in the water
Washington Park was vandalized last night and pool sanitation was "compromised," according to a city release, and we shudder to think what that might entail. As a result, the pool is closed today– a bloody hot day, thank you very much, vandals– and is expected to reopen tomorrow.
Update: The pool's filtering equipment was damaged, says city spokesman Ric Barrick, and they didn't want people swimming in untreated water. Whew. "That park gets vandalized a lot," says Barrick, "and we may have to step up patrols."
