The Natchitoches Recreation and Parks Department (NRPD) announced that the City Pool, located in City Park at 311 Amulet Street, will be open for residents and visitors beginning Tuesday, May 30. The pool will close on Saturday, Aug. 12 until the summer of 2018.

“The Natchitoches Recreation and Parks Department is making a splash this summer with new and exciting programs at the City Pool including Mommy & Me Swimming every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30-6:30 pm along with evening swim lesson hours for those who can’t make it to morning swim class,” said Chris Laurence, director of the NRPD.

Daily rates for open swim will remain at $1 per person (including parent/guardian). Open swim hours are 1-4:30 pm, Monday-Saturday. However, swim lessons will be $25 per child and $20 for each additional child.
