Check on the Outdoor Pool’s Status

This summer, our outdoor pool has having trouble keeping up with the hundreds of swimmers using it every day this summer, requiring early closures when the deep end becomes too cloudy for our lifeguards to see all the way to the bottom of the deep end. This is a safety issue we cannot compromise on and requires us to close the outdoor pool.

If you want to check on the status of the outdoor pool before you arrive, please call the recreation department’s front desk at (319) 626-5716.
