Expansion of open swim at city pools beginning week of June 21

6/16/2021

 

The City of Gainesville’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs has scheduled the next phase of reopening the city’s pools beginning the week of June 21.

The City is committed to restoring operations for all recreational activities in a safe, incremental approach for all neighbors.


Hunter pool will be open for lap swim and open swim all week. Hunter pool will be open during regular hours on Sunday, July 4.

  • Advance reservations are required as pool capacity is limited at this time. Neighbors may make reservations by calling the pool (352-334-2191) after 3 p.m. for the next day and on Fridays for weekend slots. You can also make your reservation online.
  • Pool Hours: Monday – Friday: 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. Lap swim only, 10-12 p.m., 1-3 p.m. Family swim; Saturday: 10-12 p.m., 1-3 p.m. & 4-6 p.m.; Sunday: 12-2 p.m.; 3-5 p.m.

 Mickle pool will be open for family swim all week beginning June 21.  Mickle pool will be open during regular hours on Sunday, July 4.

  • Advance reservations are required as pool capacity is limited at this time. Neighbors may make reservations by calling the pool (352-334-2190) after 3 p.m. for the next day and on Fridays for weekend slots. You can also make your reservation online.
  • Pool Hours: Monday – Friday: 10-12 pm, 1-3 pm & 4-6 pm; Saturday & Sunday 12-2 p.m. and 3-5 p.m.

 Cherry pool will be open during regular hours on Sunday, July 4. Just a reminder Cherry pool is only open for lap swimming and program use at this time. The liner at Cherry pool has been scheduled for replacement in November of this year. In the past months, we have seen an acceleration in the deterioration of the liner. So much so that we have deemed it unsafe for recreational swim. After consulting with a pool service it has been determined that we cannot patch the holes that have formed, and having lots of people standing and jumping on the liner on the floor will cause further deterioration. We appreciate your patience through this and when we open after the repair we will return rec swim to Cherry pool.
