The Portal Pool and Prospect Lake Beach operations are closed for the rest of the 2020 season.

The Portal Pool has structural issues that have lead to excessive water loss and the remodeling of the Beach House at Prospect Lake continues to keep the swim area closed.

City officials hope to reopen the beach area in late July.

Currently, Prospect Lake is closed indefinitely due to the return of blue-green algae. Learn more here.
