News

MADISON COUNTY, Ark. (KNWA) — A popular state park swimming pool in Madison County has been closed because of severe risk of injury or death.

The pool at Winthrow Springs State Park in Huntsville has been deemed so dangerous that park staff aren’t even allowed in the area.

An engineering investigation said the pools supporting walls have the potential for a “catastrophic failure.”

The rest of the park will remain open.
