Patch Staff Report

As part of a maintenance procedure, the Department of Parks and Recreation and Atlanta Public Schools have closed the Martin Luther King Middle School Natatorium in the Grant Park neighborhood.

The natatorium will be closed from February 10 through April 13.

The natatorium, located at 582 Connally Street, includes an indoor six-lane, 25-meter pool, as well as locker room facilities with showers, which are all located on the bottom floor of the middle school.

Last year, the City announced the official re-opening and relocation of the Martin Luther King public pool to M.L. King Middle due to safety concerns at the original Martin Luther King Natatorium located on Boulevard.

Through a press release, the Department of Parks and Recreation apologized to residents and visitors for the inconvenience; however, it is encouraging everyone to visit one of the City’s other Natatoriums: Adamsville, Rosel Fann and Washington Park.

For questions, concerns or additional information, please contact Aquatics Program Director Eric Ericson at (404) 546-6774 or via email at eericson@atlantaga.gov. DPR encourages MLK Middle School Natatorium patrons to visit www.atlantaga.gov/ipacrs in April to see the spring 2014 pool schedule.
