COVID-19:

The health and safety of our swimmers, staff, and other patrons remains our highest priority. Below you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible while also allowing our swimmers and patrons to enjoy the water.

  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices, such as encouraging all staff, patrons, and swimmers to stay home if they are sick, washing their hands frequently, cover coughs and sneezes, wearing cloth face coverings when not in the water.
  • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on children younger than 2 years of age, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the cover without assistance.  Face coverings are not required when in the pool.
  • Increasing cleaning and disinfection, within the facilities by: cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces, such as handrails, lounge chairs, umbrellas, and door handles.
  • Encouraging social distancing when possible by changing the deck layouts to ensure patrons can remain 6 feet apart in standing and seating areas, visual cues like tape or cones on floors and sidewalks, limiting large group events on premises.
  • In the event someone gets sick, we have plans in place to isolate the person until they can be transported to their home or healthcare facility, and we are working with local health officials. If you have a specific question about this plan or COVID-19, please Ed Koenigsfest at [email protected] for more information.

There is a maximum capacity we need to follow for your safety.  This number may increase during the season.  We are keeping a count of patrons in the pool area. It may be necessary to wait until some families leave, before others can be admitted.

On very hot or busy days consider on coming early at 11am or coming later after 4:30pm, when the pool area is least crowded. 

New this year:

  • Seniors and adult swim time will be available from 10am to 11am
  • Concession stand will operate under the outdoor dining requirements, so tables and chairs will be more spread out.

Due to social distancing logistics, there will be no parties or canopy rentals this year or swim lessons. Also the diving board and slide will be closed.

When you check-in with the Pool Attendant, they will need to record your name, pool tag numbers and collect your guest passes (if you bring guests). Guests will need to provide their name and phone number. These requirements are for the Health Department to conduct contact tracing, if needed.

  • There are a limited number of pool lounge chairs, and deck chairs so you may bring your own, or a beach blanket for the grass areas
  • Bring hand sanitizer, tissues, sun screen, sunglasses, etc. as well as face coverings and foot coverings for when you use the restrooms, go to the concession stand and are entering and exiting the facility.
  • No toys or flotation devices are allowed.
  • Parents/adults are responsible to have their children follow social distancing and hygiene practices
  • Restrooms – please be patient and do your best to socially distance and practice good hygiene. Pick up after your family, so it is clean for the next family. Wear face coverings and foot coverings.
  • All prior rules and policies for the pool remain in effect.

No guest passes are for sale on site. Please make your purchase on-line or by calling the Recreation Department, before 3:30pm the day before you want to use them. For weekends, please purchase by the Thursday before.
