Here's what's trending for April 27.

An Allentown swimming pool that has been closed since 2019 will reopen this summer. Irving Pool has been torn down and rebuilt and will be opening for the summer swimming season. It cost $2.7 million to reconstruct the new pool, which will feature a wading area, lap lanes and a whirlpool. The city plans to open the new Irving Poll on May 24. How many days it will be open will depend on the hiring of lifeguards. 20 lifeguards are needed to fully staff the pool. If they can't hit that number, the pool may operate on limited hours until its fully staffed. Two other city pools, Fountain Park and Jordan, remain closed with no opening date in sight. Cedar Beach and Mack pools will also open this summer, on May 25 and June 15, respectively. Unlike Irving, these two pools will be open to anyone, not just Allentown residents.

The poll was sponsored by the Fuel Merchants Association of New Jersey.
