A community rally has been scheduled for 3 p.m. today at Wilson Park Pool to demand Toledo city councilmen open that facility and the Jamie Farr Park pool this summer.
The rally is being organized by ONE Village Council in conjunction with other organizations, parents, and youths.
ONE Village Council said opening the pools would be a sign the city is willing to make good on promises it made for more neighborhood investments and improvements in North Toledo in the aftermath of a 2005 riot incited by a neo-Nazi march.
