The 2015 schedule for both Shipe Pools has been posted to the city’s website and is also reflected here. Mark your calendar for the opening of Big Shipe Pool on Monday June 8th and Shipe Wading Pool on Tuesday June 16th!
We are grateful to the city for keeping Shipe Pools open this summer in spite of their known and significant maintenance needs. It is understood that there is always a possibility that the pools will not be open on schedule because of these needs and if there is a lifeguard staffing shortage (as there was last summer). Any change to the planned schedule will be posted on-site at the pools.
Keep your eyes out for information about the design process for the new pools that will be built to replace the aging ones at Shipe! The Parks and Rec leadership are estimating that they will begin the community engagement process about the pool design this winter. No indication yet about the timeline for for construction or for the opening of a Shipe new pool. In the meantime, enjoy the summer pool season this year with your neighbors at Shipe Park!
