Parks Department officials hope to have Hartke Pool open by this weekend. Uncertainty was swirling around the east side pool, after it's massive water slide had to be taken down.

As we first reported last week, the slide's structure was falling apart causing major safety issues, and it could not be replaced. Removing that slide cost more than $12,000.

It's not clear yet if a new slide will take it's place. For now, the Parks Department is focused on making other repairs.
