Chesterley Park considered for potential new swimming pool site

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Another site is being considered for a potential new swimming pool in Yakima. Chesterley Park is a possible spot.

It was named for its central location. Other potential sites for a pool include North 16th Avenue near the Yakima Cinema and two locations on Nob Hill Boulevard.

People say they like the idea of putting a new pool at Chesterley.

"It would mean more opportunities for kids to be able to have different options to go to different areas to actually have fun during the summer time and cool off," said Kiera Funk.

A new pool could cost Yakima $8 million. City Council would need to approve a bond to build it.
