More than 100 years old - Moores Park Pool still has a view that residents adore.

“The view is wonderful,” said Dale Schrader. “You see the river, you see the smoke stacks. It’s just nothing like it.”

Schrader is the chair of the Friends of Moores park pool group and while we can see this beautiful view, there are some things you can't see.

“Well, its missing water right now for one thing, haha,” Schrader said. “People and kids, its missing a lot.”

But efforts are underway to change that. Since Lansing secured $6.2 million from the state to revamp the pool.

Parks and Recreation Director Brett Kaschinske said construction is on its way.

“We have selected a vendor that will be the construction company to do it,” Kaschinske said. “Right now we are still going through the permit process and once we have the permit in place, we’re going to be starting construction out there at Moores park.”

Kaschinske anticipates the permit process to be wrapped up in the next few weeks, allowing plumbing, fencing , and locker room construction to begin.

“We are estimating that we will be open by 2025 swim season,” Kaschinske said.
