[ARCHIVED] Public Pools to Be Closed for the 2020 Summer Season

The City of Roanoke announces that Fallon Park and Washington Park public pools will be closed for the 2020 summer season (May-August). This decision was based on ongoing limitations associated with COVID-19, as well as fiscal constraints. City pools are operated in partnership with Virginia Gators, Inc. (Fallon Park Pool) and the Kirk Family YMCA (Washington Park Pool). Maintenance and repairs, which are the City’s responsibility, will continue to ensure pools remain in working condition.   

The proposed FY2020-2021 budget also recommends pools remain closed for next season due to fiscal constraints. The City has been approached by various groups and citizens who proposed the possibility of fundraising to open Fallon Park and Washington Park pools in Summer 2021. These discussions are ongoing and the City will keep the community apprised of any changes. We thank you for your patience as we continue to try and keep our community healthy and safe.
