Riverside Park Pool to Stay Open Two Additional Weeks

| August 31, 2018 | 0 Comments

Due to unexpected repairs, the Riverside Park Pool did not open its doors this year until August 11th. But, Baltimore Recreation and Parks has now agreed to keep the pool open an additional two weeks until September 16th. The pool was scheduled to close on September 3rd.

From Councilman Eric Costello:

Exciting Update on Riverside Park Pool!

At the suggestion of several neighbors, I’ve asked Director Moore from Baltimore Recnparks to extend the swimming season at Riverside Park Pool considering the very late start we had this year, and he agreed!

The pool will remain open an additional two weeks. Normal operating hours on Saturdays/Sundays, and 3pm-7pm on Mondays – Fridays after Labor Day. Doggy splash swim to close out the season will be on Sunday, September 16.

Stay cool out there!

Baltimore City Recreation and Parks was originally scheduled to open the Riverside Park Pool on June 23rd, but water flooded into the basement pump room when the pool was filled, leading to a series of needed electrical and equipment repairs.
