MEDINA – The Medina Joint Recreation Commission summer parks and swim program starts tomorrow but there won’t be swim lessons for at least the first day.

“Due to unsafe chlorine levels in the pool, swim lessons will be canceled tomorrow,” said Michelle Capstick, the program director. “They are unsure when the issue will be resolved. I will post daily updates until the issue is taken care of.  We appreciate your patience and support.  The Park program will start tomorrow. All paperwork must be completed for children to attend.”

The program Tuesday and runs through Aug. 12. It is a free program for children ages 6 to 12 in the Medina school district.

The parks program will be run at the Oak Orchard Elementary School campus with the pool program at the middle school. The program will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and until 3 p.m. on Fridays. Besides games, the program will include bowling, field trips, a carnival and other activities.

The Village of Medina and towns of Ridgeway and Shelby all contribute to funding the program.
