Pools increase access for all
McHENRY – Sweltering heat surely will draw more visitors to Knox Park Pool this summer, but so will a new handicap-accessible feature.
McHenry’s Parks and Recreation Department installed a chairlift at the pool at 201 St. Green St. during the offseason and it has been ready for swimmers with physical disabilities since the pool opened May 26.
“It’s right on the edge, in the shallow end,” said Cindy Witt, superintendent of recreation. “It’s for people with difficulty getting in and out of the pool.”
