Previously closed Merced pool opens for use

FRESNO, Calif.

Swimmers flooded into Merced's McNamara Pool Thursday afternoon.

The pool has been closed the past two years because of budgetary shortfalls but a local group called the Merced Organizing Project gathered private donations and limited city funds to operate the pool this summer.

The McNamara pool will now be open Thursday through Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m.

Admission is $1 for kids and $2 for adults.
