The popular center closed suddenly in mid-March.
A drive by the Cool Springs Golf and Family Recreation Center on Hamilton Road in Bethel Park on Tuesday afternoon showed the center's miniature golf and upper driving range areas to be open for business.

Also, the Baldwin Pool will stay open late on Community Day and other notes from a May 15 borough meeting.
