Prescott Pool looks to July 23rd opening

Stay Safe guidelines require creative scheduling


PRESCOTT—Pool Manager Kyra Hartley is happy to announce: “We hope to be open by the 23rd of July, I am very excited!”

Due to the Stay Safe proclamation there will be some new rules at the pool: 1) all patrons must wear a mask when they are not in the water, 2) all staff will wear a mask unless they are on a high guard chair with a 6-foot perimeter, and 3) there can be no more than 25 people in the water at a time and no more than 5 in a section of the pool.

Open Swim:

The pool will be split into 5 sections this year to follow the guidelines above. Patrons can reserve sections of the pool in 1 hour and 45-minute time slots. This will also give them a corresponding section of the pool deck to set up their group. If a group has more than 5 patrons then they can book multiple sections of the pool at a time but will need to stick to those sections only. When you purchase a pool pass with cash or check you can book up to 3 time slots in advance to secure a swim time.

Swim Lessons:

For children that can support themselves in the water and swim, there can be four kids in a class with one instructor. The instructor will be wearing a mask on land. For children that cannot swim, the instructor will be on land with a mask and the children in the pool will need an adult to be in the water with them. This means that there can be two children in a swim class, each with a parent.

Water Aerobics and Lap Swim:

There are 10 total water aerobics spots and five lap swim spots. This is due to the demand for the shallow end of the pool for water aerobics.
