Lifeguard Shortage Leads to Pool Schedule Changes
Due to limited pool capacities stemming from the national lifeguard shortage, we are adjusting pool hours
to both allow our lifeguards to watch over the busiest areas during peak times and for our members and season pass holders to have designated access to some of our outdoor pools during select time frames and take full advantage of their membership or season pass.
Effective July 8, the Lap Pool will be closed 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and close at noon on Saturdays and Sundays.
Effective July 16, the following time blocks will become available for only members and season pass holders. The Kirksey Recreation Center and remaining outdoor pools will maintain full access to residents and non-residents outside of these time blocks:Fridays –
1-4 p.m. at Botsford Pool; 4-6:45 p.m. at Clements Circle PoolSaturdays – noon-3 p.m. at Clements Circle Pool; 4-6:45 p.m. at Botsford PoolSundays – noon-3 p.m. at Botsford Pool; 4-6:45 p.m. at Clements Circle Pool
We’re attempting to use new and innovative methods to keep our pools running and recruit lifeguards. The sooner we get more lifeguards, the sooner we can expand our capacities and availability. If you’re interested in getting certified, we have a course running from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday-Sunday, July 16-18, at the Kirksey Recreation Center.
