NATCHITOCHES – The City of Natchitoches Recreation and Parks Department announces that City Pool will officially open to the public on Saturday, June 13, 2015 with swimming lessons starting Monday, June 15, 2015.  City Pool is located at 311 Amulet Street in Natchitoches.City Pool

The opening of the pool had been delayed due to weather and renovations being completed at the pool.  Renovations to City Pool included updating and repairing pump room equipment, filling in the deep end of the pool so that the pool has a max depth of five feet, and replastering the pool to prevent leaks.

“We are sorry for the delay in opening the pool, but feel like these improvements will be a great addition to the community,” stated Kendrick Llorens, Recreation and Parks Department.  “In the past, we have been limited to the amount of kids we can safely have in the pool.  With the pool now being five feet at its deepest level, we will be able to accommodate up to 100 kids in the pool for swimming lessons as well as increase the amount of play area in the pool for recreational swim.”

City Pool will be open on Saturday, June 13 for recreational swimming beginning at 2:00 p.m.  City Pool will be open for recreational swimming Monday through Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  The cost for recreational swim is $1 per person.

Swimming lessons will begin on Monday, June 15 at 8:00 a.m.  Swimming lessons are offered in sessions and cost $20 for the first child enrolled and $17 for each additional child.  The sessions are June 15 – 26, June 29 – July 10, and July 13 – 24, 2015 and will be offered at 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. time slots.  Registration for each session ends the Friday before the session begins.
