Alcester City Pool

This page will be used to update people in the community on pool closings, swimming lessons, and pool activities.

Here are the new pool hours for 2020!

[05/21/20]   THE ALCESTER POOL WILL BE OPENING JUNE 1ST. Due to COVID-19, special guidelines have been put in place this summer to keep patrons and staff of the Alcester Pool safe.
1. The big pool will be limited to 26 patrons and the baby pool will be limited to 5 patrons. Baby pool will still be free but will be accessed by going through the big pool so the number of patrons can be monitored.
2. With limited capacity, swimmers will be let in at a first come first serve basis until the limit is reached. (You can call ahead of arrival to the pool to check if there are spots available). Once a swimmer leaves the pool, their spot will be given to the next waiting swimmer.
3. If you or your child is sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, you or your child will not be able to use the Alcester Pool until recovered. This is the responsibility of the parents and children to be accountable and stay home when they are sick to help keep everyone safe.
4. Special cleaning measures have been put in place to ensure that everything at the facility that is touched frequently (bathrooms, ladders, slide, diving board) will be sanitized before and after each shift as well as during every pool break.
5. Social distancing will be encouraged while in the pool area.
6. No toys, floaties, noodles, or balls of any sort will be available for patron use. Patrons must bring their own if they want to use these.
