The opening of Lathey Outdoor Pool, which was scheduled to open on Wednesday, June 9, has been delayed due to mechanical issues. Facility staff are working hard to fix the problem and hope to announce a new opening date in the next few days.

George Ward Outdoor Pool, which was scheduled to open on Wednesday, June 16, will also be delayed. The pool will open Saturday, June 19, weather permitting, as contractors require more time than expected to complete maintenance on the pool prior to the start of the season. 

The City thanks residents for their patience during this time.  Riversdale Pool has opened and is available for patrons. Mayfair Pool will open as scheduled on Tuesday, June 15.
