Oswego YMCA pool closed for six to eight weeks

The Oswego YMCA pool is closed so that crews can make major repairs on the aquatic facility.

The YMCA’s board of directors approved closing the aquatic center so that crews could make major repairs to the building’s roof and dehumidification system.

It is the first major work performed as part of the Oswego Y’s recent capital campaign.

“At the Y, we’re committed to providing a safe environment so that everyone can have fun and grow stronger,” said Lisa Pachmayer, interim executive director of the Oswego YMCA. “The board has known that repairs to the pool building were needed and has planned for them.”

The work will take six to eight weeks to complete.

In the interim, many programs that had been run at the pool will be held at other local pools, including at Oswego High School, Oswego Middle School and the Fulton Family YMCA.
