Have some questions about the opening of the Municipal Pool? Check out these FAQ’s!
How can I make sure I have a smooth experience at the pool?
All visitors will be required to wear a mask as they enter the pool facility through the Locker Rooms. Lockers Rooms will not be available for showering and/or changing - though they will be for bathrooms use. Visitors must both arrive and leave in swimming attire that is suitable for the pool.
What can I expect when I arrive to use the pool?
Groups will enter the pool deck, through the locker rooms, one at a time. Please expect a short delay upon entering, especially on the hottest days. To ensure the safety of our residents, queue lines will be amply socially distanced. Upon pool deck entry, lounge chairs will be assigned related to household size.
Please understand, with a limited amount of furniture, stringent sanitation standards, and controlled use, a lounge chair may not be available for every member of your party. Swimmers are encouraged to bring portable chairs to supplement their needs if the group size exceeds 3.
What will I be able to do at the pool?
Just about everything you normally would! The water slide is undergoing repairs and may be closed in the earliest days of the pool season. This is not a situation that will persist the entire summer. New this year will be dedicated and reserved 25-yard lap lanes for lap swimmers. 3 lap lanes will be afforded during all segments throughout the day.
Households will be required to distance between themselves - those who cannot, or repeatedly encroach on other’s space, may be asked to leave. We are requesting that everyone who comes to the facility plays an active role in reducing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in our community.
How can I make sure that I get a spot on the Pool Deck?
Entry to the pool deck will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once capacity is reached for a given segment, those turned away will have the option to reserve space for the upcoming session, and return later in the day, or wait until someone currently using the pool leaves.
Are there any Summer Programs being offered?
A number of summer programs have been cancelled this year. This includes the Swim Lessons program, and Sea Serpents Swim Team. Senior Water Aerobics will be held, though on a much smaller scale than in previous summers.
Senior Water Aerobics (5 weeks, beginning July 13)
Senior Water Aerobics will be offered on a smaller scale this summer. In accordance with the precautions being taken at the Senior Center, those who wish to participate in the Senior Water Aerobics program must go through a pre-screening checklist before entering the pool.
Two separate reduced spaces will be afforded to Senior Citizens wishing to participate Monday - Wednesday from 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. Please arrive swimming attire, and bring a towel! Showers will not be available. A maximum of 40 participants will be allowed into the pool each day. For the duration of 2020, this program will open to only residents of St. Clair Shores. Punch Cards good for 20 uses will be available at both the Pool and Parks & Recreation Office.
