CitiParks Highland Park Pool to Close for Remainder of 2022 Season
City announces closure due to damages sustained during heavy rains
PITTSBURGH – The City of Pittsburgh and CitiParks announced the closing of Highland Park Pool for the remainder of the 2022 season due to damage suffered in last week’s heavy rains.
Last week’s heavy rains caused significant amounts of mud to run into the Highland Park Pool. After assessing the amount of mud in both the kiddie pool and main pool, it became clear that the mud could not be handled without having to drain the pool first. Upon further inspection, two of the three large water filter tanks will need a complete replacement before the pool can be refilled.
The repairs required to reopen Highland Park Pool are extensive and labor intensive; they will not be complete before the end of the 2022 pool season.
Residents are reminded that they can find the most up-to-date information on CitiParks’ pools at https://pittsburghpa.gov/citiparks/swimming-outdoor. The pools operating closest to Highland Park are Bloomfield Pool, Magee Pool, Ammon Pool, and Schenley Pool.
To accommodate the extra hour of lap swim enjoyed by Highland Park patrons, we will be extending lap swim at Bloomfield Pool to begin at 11:00 a.m. effective Wednesday, August 10 for the remainder of the season.
