RAINBOW BEACH CLOSING

The Vincennes Parks Board Wednesday night recommended that Rainbow Beach at Gregg Park be closed for the summer season. Parks Director Steve Beamon said it was a tough decision to make, but there were a number of factors such as health regulations, safety and liability for both lifeguards and pool attendees, social distancing policing at the pool and attendence limitations. The recommendation now goes to Mayor Joe Yochum. The mayor when asked about the pool said it is possible that if more regulations are loosened in the state, it could be opened in the near future.
