Pool Hours and lifeguarding

Safety is our number one priority. Due to a national lifeguard shortage impacting us locally, we will continue to adjust pool hours and capacities to achieve a safe swimming environment. 

Botsford Pool, Shelden Pool and Clements Circle Splash Park are closed until summer 2024.

Effective Aug. 1, 2023, the pools at the Kirksey Recreation Center will have a modified schedule as follows:

Monday through Friday:   5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. 
Saturday:                             6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Sunday:                                7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
