Grab your swimsuits and get ready to head over to our Recreation Department pools this weekend! A couple of pools will be opening on Saturday, May 27 just in time for Summer!
The pools at South Bibb Recreation Complex (7035 Houston Rd) and Delores A. Brooks (3326 Ocmulgee E Blvd) will be open Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. They will also be open Tuesday through Friday from 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.
“We apologize for not opening all pools right away. We are currently working with a new company to hire more lifeguards and get the remaining pools open,” says Recreation Department Director Robert Walker. “As soon as they provide more lifeguards, we’ll open all pools that are operational. This is a process, and we appreciate everyone’s patience. We know Aquatic Management will give us the best and are excited to be working with them.”
The pool at Bloomfield-Gilead will not open this summer due to extensive damage needing repair and no set estimate when parts will arrive. Transportation will be provided to and from the Bloomfield-Gilead building to another pool starting Monday, June 5 beginning at 10:00 a.m. Kids 17 years and under will be able to swim from 10:30 until 12:30 p.m. before heading back to Bloomfield-Gilead.
Parents can go to Bloomfield-Gilead or call our Recreation Department at (478) 219-2001 to reserve a spot as there is a capacity of 40 kids. Transportation will run every Monday and Friday throughout the summer.
