Natatorium reopens to big crowd of swimmers and supporters
The Richmond Plunge, henceforth known as the Municipal Natatorium, it's original name, opened for business Saturday, August 14, after nearly 15 years of closure because of structural defects. A Scottish bagpipe band played "The Saints Go Marching In," in anticipation of the long line of hopeful swimmers wanting to be in the water on the first day of essentially a brand new swimming pool. City Manager Bill Lindsay gave the keynote speech, followed by the Richmond Trust represented by Ellie Strauss and others, Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner and Richmond Mayor and city council.
