Resident's of Clinton will shortly be able to start having some fun in the sun! The city of Clinton announced that Riverview Pool just below the dike in Clinton will finally open for the season this Monday.

Summer officially starts this Saturday, but the people Clinton and surrounding Gateway and Quad City residents will be able to cool off starting on Monday. The city of Clinton's Park and Recreation Department announced on social media on Wednesday that Riverview Pool will officially open to the public for the Summer 2020 season on Monday.

In their social media announcement, the city said that "big changes" are being made to ensure proper social distancing and safety. These are the new rules and swim times for Clinton's Riverview Pool:
