[ARCHIVED] City of Midland Aquatic Facilities to Open

CITY OF MIDLAND AQUATIC FACILITIES


Doug Russell Pool and Washington Family Aquatic Center will be opening June 10th for the 2020 summer season.  Due to less than normal staffing applications, the pools will alternate days six (6) days during the week.  One of the two pools will be open each day. All pools will be closed for maintenance and training on Mondays.  Citizens should be advised, currently, the attendance is limited to 50% of normal occupancy per the Governor’s orders. 


In an effort to accommodate as many pool-goers as possible, and to allow staff to clean the facilities, entry passes will be sold for 3-hour sessions.  Passes go on sale at the pool each day, 30 minutes prior to the posted opening times.  Passes will be sold for each day only on that day.  Passes will be limited to a 3-hour session A or session B, good only for the date stamped on the pass.  No punch cards will be sold this year.


Due to staffing limitations and COVID precautions, there are a few other rules the 2020 pool season. No private parties or reservations will be allowed.  There will be no lap swim times and no swimming lessons. No family nights are scheduled. All pool furniture will be removed from both the Washington and Doug Russell facilities.  No outside chairs are allowed. If any citizen needs special accommodations, they should speak to a manager at the site.
