AMES, Iowa (AP) — An Ames pool has temporary closed its slides to the public because of design cracks.
Officials at the Furman Aquatic Center said in a news release Tuesday that they recently discovered cracks in the structural supports of the drop slide and the tube slides.
The slides will be closed until a structural engineer can investigate the issue.
Ames Parks and Recreation Director Keith Abraham says the public's safety comes first. The rest of the center, which includes a lazy river, diving boards and a water playground, remains open during regular hours.
