Horton Aquatic Park to remain closed
06/03/2020

(KNZA)--The Horton Aquatic Park will remain closed this summer.

 According to a post on the city's Facebook page, the Horton City Commission made "the difficult decision" Monday evening after a lengthy discussion.

The post said the Commission felt it was in the best interest of the staff and patrons that the facility remain closed this season.

Horton Mayor Bryan Stirton cast the lone no vote, telling MSC News, “I feel like it's a mistake not to try the open softly with what restrictions we were going to have. But I think we are on the verge of no restrictions and the pool could have at least been open for a month and a 1/2. I felt like we waited long enough to make a decision and that there was enough hope on the horizon to have opened it.”

 Horton joins several other local communities--including Atchison, Hiawatha and Horton--in deciding not to open their Aquatic Parks due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
