Hatter’s wanting to frolic in the water at Echo Dale swim lake will have to wait a little longer.

It’s classified as a pool, so is eligible to re-open under the phase 2 relaunch.

Emergency Management director Merrick Brown says officials still need to keep mass gathering restrictions in mind.

Brown says, “Echo Dale presents a very unique circumstance, because it’s an open area.  So, it’s not like an outdoor pool or an indoor pool where we can actually really closely control the number of people that are entering and exiting.  So, it presents just another complexity that we have to consider.”

Brown adds Echo Dale will probably be among the last of city pools to re-open.
