We’re in the hottest time of the summer and there’s no place Miami Valley residents would rather be than our communities outdoor pools as we celebrate 4th of July.

Two locations, however, won’t be reopening their doors. The United Theological Seminary Pool in Trotwood and the Fairview Pool in Dayton won’t be open this summer.

The UTS Pool is permanently closed, per a post on its Facebook page.

“It is with sadness that I tell you that the UTS Outdoor Pool will be closed indefinitely,” a post read. “After blowing our water main in 3 different places, it has just become too expensive to repair.”

The Fairview Pool is being renovated this summer, Dayton Recreation and Youth Services Program Coordinator Lamonte Hall Jr. said.

Meanwhile, residents will still have a variety of pool options across the Miami Valley.

They include:
