Athens City Pool Closed for 2020 Season

COVID-19 UPDATE GRAPIC

After careful consideration, it is with much sadness we announce that the Athens City Pool will not be opening for the 2020 season. This decision was a difficult one and was not made lightly. APR consulted with the Athens City-County Health Department, the Recreation Advisory Board and City Administration whom all support this decision. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 guidelines of capacity, distancing, and sanitation requirements, we feel that we cannot operate the pool in a fiscally responsible way nor will we be able to properly ensure the safety of our patrons coming into the facility. At the forefront the health and safety of our patrons takes top priority. We sincerely thank all of our patrons that use the pool each summer and we will greatly miss seeing everyone! In the meantime, stay safe and stay healthy. We hope to see you again next year!
