The 2022 season is underway at the village-owned-and-operated Margaret Ann Pool in Oak Hill and the hot temperatures have helped boost early-season attendance and pool parties.

The pool opened for the season on Saturday, June 4 and the regular daily operating hours are 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Daily admission prices are $3 for adults and $2 for children. The season will close for  the summer sometime in August.

Pool Manager Joy Hale and her staff are currently selling individual and family season passes. The season and family passes start at $60 for single individuals; $105 (two persons); $140 (three persons); $170 (four persons); $200 (five persons); and $33 for each additional person.

The staff is also booking pool parties. The parties are $175 and are two-and-half hours long from 6:30 to 9 p.m. There are still some spots open, but they go fast so any groups or organizations are urged to book as soon as possible.

 One of the head lifeguards, Olivia Jones, told The Telegram the concession-stand sales have been good and the pool is running smoothly.

Oak Hill Mayor Paul McNeal also stated the pool is an essential asset to the community. He thanks the citizens for supporting the parks and recreation levy, which provides revenue to maintain and operate the pool. He says the water levels are holding good after a big repair project was completed to eliminate a leak.
