There are not many like this now, but future budget plans call to close 43 pools in the county (you can thank Scott Walker later), so soon enough there will be plenty like this. It's difficult to maintain because the concrete basins wear easily, lots of water and the extreme temperature changes Milwaukee weather don them make for fast deteriorating pools. This one, fast approaching 70 years old, had age as a majour factor working for it, as well.
