Pool closed

BAR HARBOR — Glen Mary wading pool was closed for cleaning this week after people reported getting streaks of tar on them while in the water.

Public works director Chip Reeves said that it seems the excessive heat last week caused the asphalt pavement around the edges of the pool to get soft, and that some could have come off while children played on it. The pool was drained, swept out and cleaned, and should be back up and running by Friday, he said.
