Cookeville resident Gunnar Netherton, 16, makes waves and he barrels down the big slide at Gilley Pool on Tuesday afternoon. Said Gunnar, "Cookeville doesn't have anything like this."
After racing down the big slide at Gilley Pool on Tuesday afternoon, Cookeville resident Gunnar Netherton had a smile on his face and praise on his tongue.“This is definitely worth the trip,” said Gunnar, 16. “We come here once or twice a year. Cookeville doesn’t have anything like this.”That seems to be a popular sentiment as Gilley Pool manager Dawn Christian says the pool regularly attracts visitors from all over the state, even as far away as Chattanooga and Knoxville.
