FINAL POOL CLOSURES: This is it, pool friends, and the swim and dive teams thank you for your patience: The final home dive meet is TONIGHT, 7/20 (final swim meet was last night) then the swim banquet will close the pool Saturday at 5 p.m. For TONIGHT, though, the diving well will close at 4 p.m. The pergolas will be reserved for the visiting dive team (Commonwealth) and the decks directly beside the dive well reserved for Parklawn divers. At 6 p.m. when the dive meet starts, the deep end of the main pool area will be closed as will the basketball court and playground. Most divers need minimal distractions so we respectfully ask for quiet for all our young divers tonight! ... See MoreSee Less

Just wanted to say my family stayed and watched the dive meet after swim lessons were over and we were so impressed with the talent of the swim team members! What a great addition to the pool.

*updated on May 28, 2021

This year, in accordance with CDC, state and county recommendations, the current plan for COVID operations at Parklawn Pool is as follows:

  • The facilities will return to an open basis with no reservations needed for swimming. The tables and seating areas will be open seating as well.
  • As always, please be responsible and do not come to the pool if you have experienced any COVID symptoms recently.
  • If you’re fully vaccinated (two weeks after final dose), masks are not required. We ask that non-vaccinated individuals (including children) please wear masks in accordance with CDC guidance when inside pool buildings, when interacting with staff and volunteers (front desk and snack bar), and when unable to maintain social distance from other non-vaccinated individuals.
  • The pool is waiting for the first two weeks or until further positive guidance from state and local officials occurs before moving forward with allowing pool parties. You may still make party requests for this season that the pool will honor once/if the county and state fully ease restrictions.
  • Guests are allowed; regular guest pass policies apply.
  • All must follow current CDC, state and local guidelines.
These rules are in addition to the established rules for the pool, which have not changed. We expect all members to act responsibly and with common sense as far as general COVID behavior and interacting with each other. These rules are subject to change upon notice from the BOD based on changing local or CDC guidelines, as well as any abuse of the spirit of the rules.
