Paris residents can beat the heat this summer by swimming in a brand new pool at Lions Park.
A grand opening celebration for the pool is scheduled for July 7 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. The event will include a cake and ribbon cutting ceremony, as well as a barbecue and games.
County recreation staff and politicians took part in a media event to preview the new facility on Friday.

The Paris pool fundraising committee continues to accept donations for the pool, which cost $2 million to construct. For more information, visit www.parispool.ca.
