Wake Forest pool: No opening date yet for new aquatic complex
If you've been waiting for Wake Forest's massive Holding Park Pool complex to open, I wish I had better news for you.Posted — Updated
On Monday, I checked in with Edward Austin, Wake Forest's athletics and aquatics superintendent, to find out how things were going. Unfortunately, he said officials aren't ready yet to set a firm opening date. The complex will include three pools and two water slides once it does open.
"Unfortunately, we haven’t been given a firm date for completion/opening," he told me in an email. "Last week was a good one weather-wise, which allowed the contractor to complete a large portion of the concrete work for the pool deck. We’re hopeful for an opening sometime later this summer, but at this time I’m sorry to say that I can’t say when that may be."
