While Memorial Day of 2020 has seen most activities normally associated canceled, one thing remains normal. The Mountain Home City Pool will open as scheduled.The facility at Cooper Park will begin its summer run that sees the pool open until Labor Day. Opening at 9:30 a.m., the pool will allow visitors in accordance with directives from the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) concerning operations during the COVID-19 crisis.
Mountain Home Mayor Hillrey Adams says capacity is at the top of list for changes to the facility’s operation for this season.
Traffic patterns have been adjusted to control the flow of people into the pool, according to the mayor.
Another major change is coming, says Adams. In the past, parents or guardians would drop children off at the pool and go on errands or about their day. That will no longer be allowed.
The pool will continue to conduct its normal schedule and activities, with just one exception the Mayor says.
Adams adds social distancing just cannot be maintained during swim lessons, but if the ADH adjusts its directive later in the summer, there is a possibility they could return to the agenda.
Admission to the pool is $4 for swimmers and $1 for observers. Children under age 2 are admitted free. Click here for more information on the city pool.
