Beginning on Monday, August 18, six regional pools will remain open through Labor Day (September 1): Highland Park, Jack Stack, Moore, Ream, Schenley Park and Sue Murray. Reduced staffing levels will result in the closure of all other Citiparks pools. Sunday, August 17, will be the last day of operation at Ammon, Banksville, Bloomfield, Homewood, Magee, McBride, Ormsby, Phillips, Riverview Park, Sheraden, West Penn and Westwood.
During the summer Citiparks offers a variety of programs and activities at outdoor pools throughout the City. Talk to the head lifeguard for more information about programs scheduled at your pool. To enroll in any aquatics program, a participant must have a Citiparks annual pool pass (except for swim teams and the free Learn to Swim Camp).
