Riverside Park Pool Expected to Open This Weekend

| July 30, 2018 | 1 Comments

Update: The pool will not be ready by this weekend. 

The Riverside Park Pool is expected to open this weekend following multiple repairs. Baltimore City Recreation and Parks was originally scheduled to open the South Baltimore pool on June 23rd but water flooded into the basement pump room when the pool was filled, leading to a series of needed repairs.

A gate valve failure led to the flooding and subsequent electrical damage. The gate valve was replaced and the pool needed a new 600-amp load center, a new transformer, small load centers, and a water heater disconnect. The electrical work, which was delayed until the pump room was dried out, is now completed and will be inspected today.

The pool will be filled this week and is expected to open to the public on Saturday and Sunday.

Riverside Park Pool will be open Monday to Friday from 1230pm to 330pm for open swim, and Monday to Thursday from 4pm to 8pm for programmed swimming sessions. On Fridays, the pool closes at 7pm after family/lap swim starting at 4pm. On Saturdays, the pool is open for open swim from 12pm to 430pm and 5pm to 7pm. On Sundays, the pool is open from 1pm to 3pm and 330pm to 6pm for open swim.

The pool is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 12pm for Recreation and Parks’ Summer Camp Learn-To-Swim.

Baby Country Club is every Saturday from 10am to 12pm.
