Make a Splash!
All ACCGov Leisure Services pools and splash pads open Friday, July 3rd for the season. Pools close for the season Sunday, August 2nd. This summer, all pool and splash pad admission fees are waived and everyone will be admitted free of charge!
Leisure Services operates five public pools including Bishop Park, East Athens Community Center, Lay Park, Memorial Park, and Rocksprings Park.
During the aquatics season, pools are open Tuesday-Friday and Sundays, 1:00 – 5:30 p.m. Pool hours are noon – 5:30 p.m. on Saturdays. The Bishop Park pool is open to the public on weekends only. All pools are closed on Mondays for maintenance.
Because of COVID-19, a series of requirements are in place to ensure a safe experience for all visitors:
• Access will be limited at each pool and splash pad.
• No swim toys of any kind are allowed at the pool. This includes, but is not limited, to inflatable devices, kickboards, noodles, rafts, and any other items that could be shared. Personal water wings and life vests, which help beginning swimmers to stay afloat, are permitted.
• Pool furniture has been removed from Bishop Park and Rocksprings, but patrons are allowed to bring their own chairs. Pool furniture will remain at other pools due to the fact they are anchored to the pool deck.
• Diving boards, slides, and climbing walls are closed for the duration of swim season.
