Ypsilanti's Rutherford Pool finally re-opens Friday evening, following a two-year closure during which the pool was completely re-built.

The new pool will be much more cost-efficient than its worn-out predecessor, and features improvements like new lane laps, wheelchair ramps and a grassy deck area that can be used for picnicking. 

The grand re-opening takes place from 6-8 this evening.  It's free and open to the public.
