George Blackburn, a neighborhood block captain, says he wants to see it "restored to its original brilliance".
Amy Crump, Champaign Park District says, "we don't want to duplicate something we already have at Sholem. We don't want to put the exact same thing at Spalding. We want to make sure we're offering our residents choices and different options."
The park district says it's considering all the ideas neighbors have for the pool, like a water slide or even making it an indoor pool. Neighbors say they don't need all the bells and whistles like at Sholem, they just want a place their kids can enjoy. The park district plans to make recommendations after the summer pool season.
