We Need the Park View Pool Open Earlier on Weekends

An issue I’ve been watching closely this summer is the hours of operation for DPR pools and spray parks. For years, neighbors have wanted the pool at the Park View Recreation Center to open earlier on Saturday and Sunday, perhaps around 9:30 or 10 am. It currently opens at Noon on weekends.

While past attempts have been unsuccessful, I think the time is right to push for this change again. Starting on June 30th, DPR decided to extend hours when its its spray parks would be open from 9:30 am to 8:30 pm. While this is great, it doesn’t really help Park View. Never-the-less, as DPR seems to currently be open to changing service hours for spray parks, its time to push for the same consideration for local pools too.

    Totally agree; particularly for the little kiddos, it’s nice to go to the pool in the morning.
