City Announces Adjustments to Summer Pool Hours
Posted Date: 1/25/2017 9:30 AM

The summer pool schedule is here! We are excited to announce some adjustments to the 2017 pool schedule that will provide additional hours for the neighborhood pools. The City of Richardson is taking a proactive step in hiring staff and addressing an industry trend of lifeguard and outdoor aquatic staff shortages. Users will notice modifications from the previous two summers as staff sought to address lifeguard shortages that are likely to continue into the future while effectively meeting the needs of customers who use Richardson’s pools.

City staff feel confident that customers will experience consistency in the pool operations.

The four neighborhood pools will be closed one day per week this summer, on various days, Monday through Thursday. All pools will be open Friday through Sunday, during the peak operational times. Terrace Pool will now open at 10 a.m. Monday through Friday (closed Thursday).

Heights Aquatic Center will have a consistent, easy-to-remember schedule of noon-8 p.m., Monday through Sunday. The schedule is anticipated to encourage more applicants for lifeguard positions. Candidates will find shorter shifts that still provide for an opportunity to enjoy their summer or that better fit with personal schedule demands.
