“Families will see big changes to how the pools operate, but we hope everyone will understand and adapt quickly. We want everyone to enjoy the pools and stay safe,” Gilbert stated.

The changes will limit capacity, allow for social distancing, and increase cleaning and sanitation procedures.

Changes include:

  • No summer pool memberships are available this summer. Instead, daily admission tickets will be sold to maintain appropriate occupancy levels.  Tickets may be purchased online in advance through ClarksvilleParksRec.com.

  • Admission tickets for recreational swim are $3.00 for a four-hour block from 10:00am to 2:00pm or 3:00pm-7:00pm Monday-Saturday. One time block for recreational swim is available on Sundays from 1:00pm-6:00pm. A limited number of tickets will be available for each block. 
  • Lap swim will be available at Swan Lake Pool during the hours of 6:30am-9:00am, Monday-Friday, and should also be purchased online in advance.
  • Slides, climbing walls and inflatables will not be in operation.
