A group of Toledo residents is fighting to keep their neighborhood pools open this summer. Right now the pools are on a list of pools that will not open. The group wrapped up a protest Monday May 5.
The rally took place at Wilson Park in north Toledo. It is one of the two pools in north Toledo that will close down. Residents at the rally say they hope that the closed signs will be taken down.
"Save our pools!" was the chant heard at the rally.
Residents say Wilson Park pool is more than a place to cool off. They say it keeps kids out of trouble in the summer. They say they are worried about gang violence increasing if the gates remain closed.
"It's important when you have a safe area and something for students to do, organized activities, lifeguards on duty. That keeps the community safe. That keeps our children safe," said Jack Renz, Woodward Principal.
"Save our pools. Open up our pools Mayor Collins. We need to be able to save our kids from the streets. We need to be able to save their lives possibly because they know how to swim," said a resident.
Community members at the rally say they are planning to attend the city council meeting this week. Council is not going to vote on the pools until next week, but they want to show their support for the Wilson Park pool.
