1st-Of-Its-Kind Pool Opens In North Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- It has been a long time coming, but people in north Minneapolis now have a new place to cool off.

Families lined up to be the first to splash into the brand new Webber Pool -- which is the first of its kind in the country.

Its filtration system uses plants, limestone and granite to clean the water, so no chemicals are needed.

It is free to swim there, and it is open weekends through Labor Day.
