Russell Sims Aquatic Center

Kentucky is finishing up the final phases of reopening its economy with bars, public swimming pools, and event spaces allowed to reopen at half capacity Monday.

However, not everyone is rushing to open their doors to the public.

Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Director Brent Belcher said the Russell Sims Aquatic Center will not be reopening anytime soon. He said in a normal year over 75,000 people attend events and go swimming at the facility.

“So in other words, we have more than 1,000 people that attend a day. To get that down to a couple hundred people is not conceivable to us,” he said.
