The Pools at Rosemary Recreation Complex have had an exciting first season, and we thank you for being part of our first full season!
Please see the schedule for this weekend (Saturday, August 24 & Sunday, August 25) and next week (Monday, August 26 - Friday, August 30) to the right.
Other important dates to note: - The last day the competition pool, which houses our lap lanes and diving board, will be open is Sunday, August 25. - The last day the family pool and slides will be open is Friday, August 30 - Beginning Saturday, August 31 the Spray Deck will be open for FREE from 9:00am - Dusk.
The state has minimal safety requirements for the pool that include (a) 1 lifeguard per 25 swimmers; (b) dedicated lifeguard per special sections (diving board, slides), and (c) in areas that aren’t fully visible from a lifeguard chair (example, the lifeguard at the “mushroom” chair cannot see swimmers at the end of the pool next to the slides). The pool permit does not allow our pools to operate without certified lifeguards. For us to be fully open, we need 1 pool supervisor (lifeguard), 1 lap lane lifeguard, 1 zero depth entry lifeguard, 1 mushroom area lifeguard, 1 diving board lifeguard, 1 deep water family pool lifeguard, 1 slide lifeguard, 1 lifeguard deep water lap pool, 1-2 slide monitors, 1 maintenance, 2 booth/ice cream. In some cases, you will see some of the department’s full-time staff assisting with the non-aquatic positions.
* The Spray deck will be opened from the side gate in the mornings and evenings, at no fee. When the pools are open, access will only be from the pools, with the daily admission fee. The spray deck will continue to be opened in September.
Daily Admission rates will be $5/person (resident or non-resident) and $2.50/person for seniors ages 60+ (resident or non-resident).
In the event the number of swimmers exceeds the capacity per lifeguard, the gates may need to temporarily close.
Monday, August 26 - Friday, August 30 the Slides will only be open when they can be safely staffed.
