Wausau pools close for season with attendance increase

Wausau pools have closed for the summer, with the exception of the Splash Pad at Marathon Park.

Attendance was up this summer over 2011. Karyn Powers of the Wausau and Marathon County Parks, Recreation and Forestry Departments says attendance from June-August 18 at Kaiser, Memorial and Schulenburg pools was 41,811. In 2011, 35,799 entered those same pools. Powers credits the warm weather with the increased number of visitors.

Powers says all of the pools are in need of repairs. Wausau city leaders are currently trying to determine what to do with the pools and how to pay for repairs or replacement.

While Wausau's pools have closed for the summer, those in nearby Rothschild and Weston are still open.
