The Briarwood Pool is back in business, thanks to the efforts of a group of Northsiders who came together to save it.
The YMCA reopened the pool on Memorial Day weekend, just in time for summer vacation. Since then, the pool has averaged more than 150 visitors a day.
The pool was able to be reopened because of the fund-raising efforts of the Friends of the Briarwood Pool.
The group has raised some $23,000, half of which has gone to make immediate improvements, said Friends member Wilson Carroll.
