Construction of the new Bannworth Pool and remodeling of Mayberry Pool took years to complete, but now with warmer temperatures and the arrival of summer, the public will be able to cool off and enjoy swimming at both locations in addition to the Northside Pool located at Mission High School. All that remained in May for Bannworth Pool to be ready for the public was staffing. Now that the pool is fully staffed and operational, the public has a chance to enjoy the pool.
