If the Memorial Pool opens this season, memberships will be extremely limited due to COVID-19 restrictions within the Governor’s Reopening Phases. Memberships will be restricted to odd/even days; i.e. if you purchase a membership on an odd day, you will only be able to visit the pool on odd calendar days, and vice-versa for even calendar days. Additionally, there will not be any guest pass sales at the pool.

Should the pool open for the season, there will be extensive COVID-19 rules and regulations in effect. Social Distancing will be strictly enforced at the facility and thorough cleaning/disinfecting protocols will be followed. Parents should also take note that anyone under the age of 18 will not be permitted to enter the pool without a parent or legal guardian for safety issues.

A complete list of rules, regulations, waivers, and plans associated with the possible opening of the Memorial Pool can be downloaded below.

To all of our residents and Memorial Pool members, if the pool opens for the 2020 season, it will be a very different looking pool than what we are used to; however, we will still have a safe and fun summer!
