Are ya open? I have been calling, scanning the web and your sites for weather delays and cancellations. Are you open for my morning swim or not? Announcing closures AFTER lap times kinda defeats the purpose of notifying people.
I attend a swim meet this past Sunday and afterwards I lost one of my wheelchair wheels it's a spenergy wheel black in color with red spokes. If anyone saw it out in the parking lot or knows anything about the wheel please message me. Thanks

Aquatic Recreation Facility West Mesa Aquatic Center is the site of the City's newest Olympic pool. This is an excellent pool for lap swimming, recreational swimming, exercise classes, swim meets — stadium seating to accommodate 800 spectators — and other activities.

Even though it’s cloudy, it’s still important to wear sunscreen.

Because kids are especially vulnerable to the sun’s harsh beams, it makes it even more important that we practice sun safety ☀️ Here is 5 sunscreen tips for kids from UNM Health and the City of Albuquerque.⬇️

All City Pools to Close March 14 through April 15, 2020

Per the Public Health Emergency – Executive Order 2020-004, the City is closing all City of Albuquerque run swimming pools.

The City of Albuquerque swimming pools are a community keystone that provide health, well-being, rehabilitation, socialization, and instruction in lifesaving skills. The Aquatics Division fully understands the positive impact the pools have on every individual. The decision to cancel Aquatics programs is not taken lightly. Cessation of Aquatics programs has occurred after much deliberation and done so to preserve the health and wellness of the public.
