Spa Castle Reopens After Being Shut Down by Health Department

Spa Castle, a popular indoor pool and spa facility in Queens, has reopened after being shut down by the Health Department earlier this year. 

Spa pools and outdoor pools at the College Point location were closed in March after health investigators discovered a water return feature in one of the pools that drew a girl underwater with excessive suction on Feb. 19, authorities said.

They also found that emergency response by the staff was not consistent to what the staff told investigators from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

The Health Department said Thursday that Spa Castle "has undergone a rigorous process to correct violations and met our requirement to implement a new safety plan." 

The department will continue monitoring the pool and performing frequent inspections.

In its initial response to the Health Department investigation, Spa Castle said it was "deeply committed to the safety of its patrons" and that "When our facility has received a citation, the issue has been swiftly and purposefully corrected."
