Outdoor Pools

Louisville Parks and Recreation will reopen three outdoor pools, Algonquin, Fairdale and Sun Valley, beginning Tuesday, July 7, 2020. Each pool will be open two days a week from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.  Pools may open for additional hours and days if Louisville Parks and Recreation is able to hire lifeguards for the 2020 season.

All state Healthy At Work Requirements will be followed, as well as local and state guidance that may determine when and how recreational water facilities operate. 

Patrons should continue to protect themselves and others at recreational water venues both in and out of the water by practicing social distancing and good hand hygiene. Patrons are encouraged to come wearing their swimsuits, as access to changing areas will be extremely limited. There will be no furniture allowed on the pool decks to discourage social distancing. 

Pool users must register to swim by calling Metro Parks Aquatics at (502) 897-9949. All three pools will have an initial maximum of 45 swimmers per each two-hour session for a total of 90 swimmers each day. General admission is $2 for each patron.
