Effective, Monday, August 29, the Avon Recreation Center pool area hours will be adjusted due to short staffing. The pool will be closed between 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and will also close one hour earlier at 7:00 p.m. each day. These adjusted hours will be in effect at least through Friday, September 30. The steam room and sauna will remain open during normal operating hours.
Additionally, beginning Saturday, October 1, the pool area will be closed through Sunday, October 30 for repair and maintenance. The pool area is scheduled to reopen on Monday. October 31. The steam room and sauna will remain open during the pool area closure. Projects include, diving stand installation, water slide refurbishment, plumbing repair and deep cleaning.
The Recreation Department has been fortunate only having to make minor operating adjustments thus far within a national employee shortage. Saturday pool hours and swim lesson programming were cut back beginning in March 2022. With an eye toward aggressive lifeguard recruitment, staff are hopeful that beginning Monday, October 31 pool hours can be expanded to where they once were.
The Recreation Department is committed to recruiting quality aquatics staff, providing training, and offering competitive wages.
