City Opens Pools; Entrance Fees Are Being Waived Again This Year
The city has opened both of its municipal pools, and entrance fees are being waived again this year.
Both the Pulaski Park Pool at 162 Washington St. and Spratt Park Pool at 121 Wilbur Blvd. will be open from noon to 7 p.m. each day. In addition, adult lap swim will be offered from 11 a.m. to noon at the Spratt Pool, and swim lessons are being offered from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Pulaski Pool. Applications for swimming lessons can be picked up at the Pulaski pool site.
City officials pointed out that they do reserve the right to close the pools due to public health, weather-related and/or staffing issues. The pool houses will remain closed, and there will be no concession at the pools. Residents are encouraged to picnic outside of the pool areas.
Non-vaccinated residents are also asked to wear a mask into the pool areas, but are not required to while physically in the pool swimming.
The city intends to close the pools for the season on Aug. 29. Read more here.
