Wells Fargo Retires Hot Air Balloon Program Leaving Pilots Without Iconic Stagecoach Balloon
That system, along with the pools will be up and running ready to go for Saturday. Its very warm and inviting, weve got this hot sun beaming down on us and nothing beats a pool, said Aquatics Division Josh Herbert.
The City has hired around 200 lifeguards so far which is just enough to keep all of the City pools and splash pads staffed. Herbert says the City will continue to hire lifeguards throughout the summer.
Herbert is expecting to hit capacity this weekend, but currently, there are still spots available to reserve. City officials say even though there is a chlorine shortage, they are stocked through the summer and have a reliable summer.
According to a news release, the hours for the Rio Grande Pool and South Valley Aquatics Center are as follows:
- Session 1: 11 a.m. 1 p.m.
- Session 2: 1 p.m. 3 p.m.
- Session 3: 3 p.m. 5 p.m.
Costs to swim are:
- Spectators $3.00
- Seniors and veterans free
According to the same news release, the Alameda Splash Pad is slated to open on Thursday, June 3, and will observe the same hours of operation as the swimming pools listed above. The cost to use the splash pad is $2 per person.
Lastly, private rentals can be made at all three facilities for use from 5 p.m. 9 p.m. with a minimum two-hour booking and a maximum of four hours. The South Valley Aquatic Center and Almeda Splash Pad are available daily and the Rio Grande Pool only accepts weekend rentals.
Parks & Rec Plan To Open Pools At Limited Capacity On Memorial Day Weekend
Pool goers shouldn’t have a hard time finding a lawn chair in the shade this season.
Grab your floaties because St. Joseph’s Park and Recreation Department said public pools will be open this summer, but at a limited capacity.
The COVID-19 pandemic kept both the Aquatic Center and Krug pool closed last year, but not this year. Those excited to get back to a more traditional summer lounging by the pool can plan for opening day on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, weather permitting.
However, the pandemic will still force some changes poolside.
Pool goers shouldn’t have a hard time finding a lawn chair in the shade this season as Parks and Rec said they plan to move forward with limiting the capacity of residents this summer.
“We’re talking about having to do sessions instead of just having open swim all day long. That way, we could allow more people to take advantage of the pools instead of allowing a smaller number of people spending all day at the pool. It allows more people to spend 3-4 hours at the pool,” said Chuck Kempf, Director of St. Joseph Parks and Recreation Department.
Parts of the Aquatic Center will also stay closed. The lap pool won’t be open due to structural issues, but the lazy river and activity pool will remain open on the east side of the park.
An exciting water feature that doesn’t need lifeguards is the new and upcoming splash pad at Hyde Park. Parks and Rec said residents should mark their calendar for the middle of June for opening day.

Hardin County residents once again will be able to cool off at public pools this summer.
Last summer, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision was made for municipal pools to close for the season.
This Memorial Day weekend, American Legion Water Park in Elizabethtown, Etown Swim and Fitness Center pool and the pool at Colvin Community Center in Radcliff will be welcoming people back.
Elizabethtown Parks and Recreation Director Seth Breitner said they are moving forward as if it were a normal season. The pool is scheduled to open the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.
Radcliff Parks and Recreation Director Tim Jeffries said they are looking forward to having a great pool season this year.
We are currently watching recommendations from the state and local health department for any changes to the COVID-19 regulations. If something should change by the time the season starts, we are ready to adjust and find ways to make it work, Jeffries said.
I know the community is anxiously awaiting the opening of the pool, since lots of other activities and travel has been halted over the past year, he added. We are hoping to see our community members come out and support their local pool this season and have a great time.

Four Outdoor Pools To Open Memorial Day Weekend In Richmond
LOS ANGELES, CA AUGUST 25: A child plays in a backyard pool on August 25, 2010 in Los Angeles, California.
RICHMOND, Va. Four pools in the City of Richmond are opening for the season, starting Saturday, May 29 at 12 p.m.
According to a release from the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities , the pools will be open every weekend this summer. The schedule will extend beyond weekends when the full season kicks off on Saturday, June 19.
We know that Richmonders have been so amazing as we navigate through the pandemic, PRCF Director Chris Frelke said. We are excited to open several pools early to provide more opportunities to enjoy our park system.
The city pools were closed in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The four pools that will be open are listed below:
- Blackwell Pool, 300 E. 15th Street
- Fairmount Pool, 2000 U Street
- Hotchkiss Pool, 701 E. Brookland Park Boulevard
- Randolph Pool, 1507 Grayland Avenue
During Memorial Day weekend, the pools will be open Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
City Pool Opening Memorial Day Weekend
The City Pool is ready to welcome back visitors for the 2021 summer season.
The City Park Pool and Splash Zone opens for its second summer season Memorial Day weekend. The Park Board is hoping for a good turnout at the Saturday noon opening time, swim-suited and ready for a day of play and relaxation, similar to when it opened its doors for the first time back in 2020.
The $3.3 million dollar facility held its grand opening on June 14, 2020 and, despite opening in the midst of a pandemic, the aquatic centers first season went fairly well, according to Director of Parks and Recreation Chad Speer.
Its the best year weve had since Ive been here, Speer said, whos been working with the Park Board for 14 or 15 years. He adds that the busy 2020 season was a little surprising, seeing as it began right in the middle of a pandemic.
In order to keep the pool open, Speer and the rest of the Park Board complied with CDC guidelines, which meant keeping capacity at 250, which is half-capacity, and removing patio furniture to avoid any sanitation concerns. Guests were allowed to bring their own chairs if they preferred.
Now, however, they are only limiting capacity to what is safe and comfortable for their 12 lifeguards and pool guests. According to Speer, 300 is their estimated manageable capacity.
I dont know what to expect, but were hopeful for a similar season to last year, Speer said.

Coronavirus Restrictions Remain In Place
Montgomerys public and private community pools will not open on Memorial Day weekend, the traditional start of summer, the county said Monday.
Restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic have limited all sorts of public gatherings. Although Maryland has begun reopening a limited number of public amenities and stores, Montgomery County officials have said the county is not ready to do the same.
We know that many in the community equate pool openings with the official start of the summer season, but ongoing COVID-19 restrictions make it impossible to safely open so that swimmers and employees are protected from the spread, Dr. Travis Gayles, the countys health officer, said in a press release.
The requirement to stay closed applies to pools operated by Montgomery County Recreation, as well as apartment and condominium complex pools and private swim clubs, a county press release said.
Montgomery County Recreation has seven public outdoor pools, the press release said. They are: Bethesda Outdoor Pool
Macon County Rec Pool Will Be Partially Open For Memorial Day
The Macon County Recreation Department has been working overtime to get the public pool open in time for Memorial Day. The same day the health department inspected the pool and gave approval for it to open, the motor that operates the pumps went out, shutting the pool down.
According to Macon County Recreation Director Seth Adams, the blown motor only impacts the large pool the kiddie pool is not impacted and will be open for the season on Saturday, May 29.
Adams said that typically it would have taken 2-3 days to get the replacement parts needed to open, however due to a lack of workforce, the plants that manufacture the parts are operating with 20% of their normal employees, making it 6-8 weeks before a new motor will be available.
In the meantime, while waiting for the new motor, Adams said a local pool company is working to engineer three smaller motors to be able to operate the large pool. Adams is hopeful a temporary solution will be reached over the weekend and is working with the Macon County Department of Public to get the pool reinspected with the new equipment. If everything goes as planned, the entire facility will be open to the public by Wednesday.
For the weekend, with only the kiddie pool open for use, Adams said admission will be half price. The half price cost will be $2 for anyone 6 years or older and just $1 for anyone under the age of 6. Although only the kiddie pool will be open, the entire pool deck will be available for use for patrons.

Outdoor City Pools To Reopen Memorial Day Weekend
Today, the City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation Department announced that all eight of its outdoor pools will officially reopen for recreational swim on Saturday, May 29, 2021. Historically, outdoor pools have always opened Memorial Day weekend, but closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic meant gates stayed closed last year.
Throughout the pandemic we asked folks to put in the hard work of social distancing and mask wearing so we could get back to doing our favorite things, said Mayor Tim Keller. Now we are starting to see that hard work paying off. We are looking forward to a summer full of safe gatherings for families at our pools and splash pads across the city.
Under the current re-opening guidelines from the State of New Mexico, outdoor pools are limited to 75% capacity and indoor pools to 50% capacity. To limit capacity, all visits to City pools, both indoor and outdoor, must be reserved online at play.cabq.gov or by calling the facility, and will be limited to two hour increments. Reservations can be made up to two days in advance, with registration opening at 7 am each day. There are currently no spectators allowed. As New Mexicos public health orders change in response to vaccination rates and CDC guidance, the Parks and Recreation Department will continue to review and update pool procedures.
The following COVID-19 Safe Protocols will be in place at each pool:
Sanitation measures at each pool include:
