Chris Reed started this petition to City Council of Fort Worth and

Don't close Forest Park Pool.  Don't spend millions of dollars turning this great pool into a miniature amusement park.  Separate this issue from the 2022 bond package.  Don't listen to some consultant over your constituents.

Our tax dollars could be better used by improving the pool, extending hours, and lowering the entrance price.  City Council claims that the pool is a drain on resources when it's an appreciated but underutilized amenity. Annual membership fees, timed entry for different uses, and events could all improve revenue.
