York Community Center pool will close next week for maintenance

YORK – The York Community Center will close on Monday, May 27, until maintenance work is completed on tentatively July 15.

During this time, according to Cheree Folts, director of the city’s parks and recreation department, “we will be resurfacing the pool deck and repairing the area of the diving board, as the State of Nebraska has declined our request to install a new one. The swimming pool and spa will also be repainted during this time.”

For the duration of this project, York Community Center members will have access to the Family Aquatic Center at no additional cost. Memberships will automatically transfer to the Family Aquatic Center, Foltz said.

Once the community center swimming pool and spa are reopened, community center memberships will transfer back to the community center and a 2024 Family Aquatic Center membership or day pass is needed for admission. All water fitness classes will be relocated to the Family Aquatic Center during this closure.

There will be a change in adult-only lap swim times once the community center swimming pool and spa reopen, Foltz said. “We will be moving the evening adult lap swim to 7:30-8:30 p.m. This will allow for less gaps in the open swim schedule. During lap swim times, the pool will only be available for patrons 16 and older for swimming laps or exercising (water walking, aqua jogging) in a lap lane.”

Lap swim times will be: Monday through Friday, 6-9 a.m.; noon to 1 p.m.; and 7:30-8:30 p.m.

She said another pool reminder is during aquatic fitness classes (Senior Water Aerobics – Monday / Wednesday / Friday from 9-9:4 5 a.m. and Water Aerobics – Monday / Wednesday 5:30-6:15 p.m.) the pool remains open to the public with priority to these classes. “This means patrons not participating in these classes must not interfere with the class and spa jets must remain off,” Foltz said.

“York Parks and Recreation appreciates your patience as we upgrade and repair the community center swimming pool and spa,” she added.
