Ohio base will open swimming pools to public

Published:

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's largest military base says it will open its public swimming pools to the public for the first time to generate revenue.

Residents of the communities around Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton will get to take advantage of the two pools that had previously been reserved for military personnel and families.

The agreement came about thanks to the Air Force community partnership, and it's expected to help the base raise money through admission charges.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1ndk6AP ) reports that it's the first step in what could lead to more base partnerships, including the golf course, summer camps and other programs.

A daily pass for the pool is $5, with monthly and annual passes available. People visiting the pool will not have to clear base security.
