Dome is back in Roeland Park. The inflatable dome over the pool at the Roeland Park Community Center was installed and re-inflated Tuesday. The pool was covered during the installation process.

The aquatic center is a cooperative between Roeland Park and the Johnson County Parks and Recreation District which manages the pool. It is open at 6 a.m. weekdays. A full schedule can be found here.
