Summer Swimming Pools

June 19, 2020-Covid-19 Update:

The Recreation Department provides aquatic services for two city-owned pools and the state-owned George I. Spatcher Memorial Pool. City owned pools are the Fred E. Briggs Memorial Pool (East Side) and Twin Village Pool (Dodgeville).  

Per state guidelines related to Covid-19 we are limited to 40% of our standard capacity this summer. This and other Covid-19 requirements related to Contact Tracing, Social Distancing and Health & Hygiene limits our ability to open all public pools in the city this summer. Therefore, the Twin Village Pool will not be open. We do plan to open Twin Village again next summer.

Please Note The Following As A Partial List Of Requirements This Summer:

* For contact tracing purposes all visitors must give name, address and phone number prior to entering the facility
* All visitors must answer health check questions 
* Locker rooms / changing facilities will not be available so come ready to swim
* 40% capacity. Visitors may be asked to rotate out of the pool area so others can come in 
* Face coverings must be worn except when in the pool
* Social distancing protocols (6') must be adhered to both in and out of the pool
* Visitors are not allowed to bring personal items other than a towel (no chairs, balls, floaties etc). The lone exceptions are Coast Guard approved PFD's and ADA equipment
* All visitors must sign out when leaving the pool facility
