EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - An Evansville city pool is set to re-open Wednesday.

The pool at Howell Park on the west side has been repaired and enhanced and will open at 11:00 a.m. under a new name.

Howell Pool will now be called the Norman Mosby Pool in honor of the late Perry Township trustee and Democratic Party leader.

The new Mosby Pool will offer a zero-depth beach area with exciting water attractions for all ages to play in the water.

It will include a water spray apparatus, dead slide and water jets.

The pool will also be equipped with a separate 150 foot water slide.

Eight lanes will be available for competitive and open recreational swimming.
