City Park Pool will not open for Open Swim if the temperature is not forecasted to reach 65° by opening.  We will re-evaluate the forecast later that morning to determine if a late opening at 1:00 PM is possible.  Employees are expected to report to work unless otherwise notified by their supervisor.

Any time lightning is visible, thunder is heard, or a storm warning has been issued for the City Park area; the pool area will be cleared and closed for a minimum of 30 minutes.  The pool manager will determine when the pool will reopen and notify the Aquatics Supervisor so that this information can be posted on to social media.  Staff members are to remain on duty until dismissed by the manager. If the Aquatics Supervisor determines that the pool will close for the day, and all guests have gone, the manager may send guards home or to another facility.  This will be done only after all duties have been completed. Rain will not affect pool operations.

City Park Pool Swim Lesson and Aqua Fitness Cancellation Procedures

City Park Pool Swim Lessons and Aqua Fitness Classes will be canceled if the temperature is not forecasted to reach 60° by the start of the class. At 3:30 PM on the prior day, a determination on the status of the next day’s classes will be made, based on weather Apps, for expected temperatures at the start of each class.  Swim Lessons and Aqua Fitness classes that are scheduled to start before the temperature is predicted to reach 60 will be canceled. Cancellations will be handled by the Coordinator and Customer Service Representatives.  Lessons that are scheduled to start after hourly temperature predictions reach 60 will start as scheduled.
