Pool Hours and lifeguarding

Safety is our number one priority. Due to a national lifeguard shortage impacting us locally, we will continue to adjust pool hours and capacities to achieve a safe swimming environment. 

Botsford Pool and Shelden Pool closed Aug. 20 for the summer season. Clements Circle Splash Park are closed until next summer.

Effective Aug. 1, the pools at the Kirksey Recreation Center will have a modified schedule as follows:

Monday through Friday:   5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. 
Saturday:                             6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Sunday:                                7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We are always hiring lifeguards! If you're interested in becoming a lifeguard, email Becky at
