Coonskin Park pool opens today

It may be awhile before the rest of the park opens, but we know that the swimming pool at Coonskin park is opening today. The park covers almost a thousand acres, and the Kanawha County Parks department has been free with saying the park took a huge hit with the storms and is decimated in places. Workers just recently finished cleaning out the pond after algae problems last month, and then the storm hit. Downed trees are also a problem there and crews are working to cut them up and haul off the debris. Regardless, the pool is open for some rest and relaxation today.
