RAINELLE - Warmer weather means ice cream, flip flops and of course swimming!

The city pool in Rainelle is opening on Monday to kick off the warmer months. Clean up crews in the town have been hard at work filling and cleaning the pool to prepare for swimmers. The Rainelle pool is unique because it has a slide and a diving board. Also, parents can rest easy knowing that there are usually 2, if not 3 life guards on duty during the pools hours of operation.

A 4 year veteran to lifeguarding at the Rainelle pool, Colby Ennis, said people come from all over to swim. "It's definitely a good thing to have the slide and the diving board for the little kids to enjoy. It's definitely fun working here so all your friends can come hang out, go on the slide and all that stuff so it's definitely a fun job,” said Ennis.

The pool will be officially open starting this Monday from 11 - 6.
