Public Pools Events & Programs

The 2015 season starts Saturday, May 23!

Announced May 21, 2015: The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department will delay the opening of the nine public swimming pools because the recent rain and cool temperatures have made the pool water too cold for safe swimming. Weather permitting, pools will open with regular operating hours on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, two days after the traditional start of the season.
All nine pools will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 23 ONLY for season pass sales, swim and dive league registration and pool rental requests. The pools will not be open for swimming that day or Sunday, May 24. Woods Pool has a water heater supplemented by solar panels which will help raise the water temperature over the next several days. Star City Shores and Irving also have pool water heaters.
