Columbia’s largest outdoor pool, Albert-Oakland Family Aquatic Center, is closed because of a broken pipe and is scheduled to reopen Tuesday.
The facility, located at 1900 Blue Ridge Road, includes a 50-meter pool, two diving boards and a water play area for children.
Columbia Parks and Recreation announced the closure on Twitter, encouraging residents to utilize the other aquatic centers in town.

Tammy Miller, a spokeswoman for Columbia Parks and Recreation, said the problem was a faulty pipe. She said the department hopes the pool will reopen Tuesday but can make no guarantees.
The pool opened Memorial Day weekend. Last Monday, it drew about 200 patrons, Miller said.
