Citiparks outdoor pools open June 14


Citiparks will open 16 outdoor swimming pools for the summer season and six spray parks for daily operation today, Tuesday, June 14.

The Citiparks pools are in Highland Park, Riverview Park, Schenley Park, Banksville, Bloomfield, Brighton Heights, Carrick, Greenfield, Hill District, Homewood, Lincoln Place, Mt. Washington, North Side, Polish Hill, Sheraden and South Side. Two additional pools, in Brookline and Westwood, currently are undergoing repairs and will open on dates to be announced.

Hours of operation for operating outdoor pools are weekdays 1 - 7:45 p.m. and Saturdays, Sundays and holidays 1 - 5:45 p.m. City residents can purchase pool tags for year-round admission to Citiparks outdoor pools or pay a daily admission.

Again this summer, any city resident 15 years or younger who is a member of a Citiparks Recreation Center will be able to use that pass at a pool for free admission. To receive free admission, a parent must register each child -- who must be 15 years or younger and a resident of the City of Pittsburgh -- at any of Citiparks’ 10 Recreation Centers and then bring the membership card to the pool each day for entry.

Beginning on June 14, six Citiparks spray parks will operate from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. daily (weather permitting). Spray parks -- located in Beechview, Beltzhoover, East Hills, Hazelwood, Shadyside and Troy Hill -- are free and will remain open through early fall.
