Overcrowded pools, smiling families

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Hundreds came out to the newly renovated Double Churches Pool Saturday. Life guards told us that at one point they thought they might have to turn people away.

We caught up with the Richardson family who were lucky enough to spend a couple hours by the poolside.

"You would stand in the slide line for 10 minutes before actually getting on the slide. So it's pretty packed in there," Richard Richardson said. "It's good that people could come together there is no drama and no violence, its good."

Richardson says that nothing will stop him and his family from enjoying area pools. He has three words of advice for other families that want to have a chance to splash in the pools at Double Churches.

"Get here early. Get here early. Other than that its great in there. You couldn't ask for a better water park here in Columbus," Richardson said.
