ASHLEY, Oh. – Ashley residents are invited to a free Welcome Back weekend Friday, June 14, through Sunday, June 16 at the renovated and updated Ashley Pool.

Guests can visit the pool for free between the hours of 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. this weekend. The pool reopened this summer after being closed last year due to a crack in the pool liner. A private donation was given toward the project, making it possible for the pool to reopen this year. Daily pool passes cost $7 for adults and $5 for children. A seasonal family pass costs $125.

The Delaware General Health District’s Creating Healthy Communities program and the Village of Ashley collaborated to provide updates to Newman Park. Updates include a new shelter house in 2018, new sidewalks, solar lighting and wheelchair-accessible picnic tables.
