Upgrades to Palmerton Memorial Pool should be completed in time for opening day.
Larry Arner, pool manager, said eight trees have been planted to ensure more shade, the grass area around the inside of the pool will be enlarged, and a sand volleyball court will replace the macadam volleyball court.
Arner said that while the original plan called for all the work to be finished by now, the weather has backed things up.
"We hope to have it ready for the start," he said. "The weather is starting to cooperate a little."
