The danger of wildfires is considered “extreme,” prompting a ban on using grills in city nature parks. Those using grills at recreation parks should be vigilant and watch for any stray sparks or embers.

The geo-thermal system at Northeast Pool is currently not working due to a main line pipe break. We will attempt to get this repaired as quickly as possible. Please note that city policy requires us to shut the pool down any time the pool water drops below 72 degrees, which we expect will happen on Tuesday, March 14.  Please call the pool at (352) 334-2191 for current conditions. Updates on the repair will be posted here.
