HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

Hannibal's YMCA is seeing waves of people wanting to swim after renovations to their pool.

Officials say the pool closed in July to repave the deck, plaster the bottom of the pool and paint the walls. The pool has only been open now for two days and officials say residents noticed the difference.

"The paint color was the biggest shock," Aquatics & Marketing Director Kayla Williams said. "Like saying 'oh you repainted.' They were excited to come back. It was a little slow that first day wondering if we are open or are we not, but we've gotten a lot of positive feedback on what they're seeing."

Some work is still being done in the pool area. Williams says that should be finished up in the coming weeks.
