Decatur outdoor pools will open for daily swim Saturday, July 11, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Oakhurst indoor pool will remain closed at this time. McKoy and Ebster will close for weekday swimming on Aug. 1 and will remain open on weekends through Labor Day. Glenlake Pool will remain open daily through Labor Day as well as the weekend following Labor Day.

Admission is $5 for each person older than 2. Resident Season Pool Passes are available for purchase at Webtrac.decaturga.com for $125. Individual passes are $45.

Total occupancy at each pool has been reduced to the following bather loads:

53 people at Glenlake Pool

31 people at Ebster Pool

25 people at McKoy Pool

The new occupancy numbers allow for each person to have 160 square feet of clear space around themselves. Social distancing guidelines require 6 feet of space in each direction, which would equal 144 square feet of space for each person. Bathrooms will be limited to two people at a time or immediate family members. Patrons should plan to limit visits to two hours in order to allow others to use the facilities. Patrons will be asked to exit the facility after two hours when others are waiting in line to enter the pool. Pool rentals are suspended until further notice.

For the safety of the community and staff the following guidelines are in place:

  • Due to the reduction in pool occupancy, the pool admission fee will guarantee patrons a maximum of two hours at the pool. Patrons will record the time that they arrived at the pool on the sign in sheet. This policy will be enforced when there are patrons in line waiting to enter the pool.
  • Maintain a distance of 6 ft. from others at all times. Parents are responsible for ensuring that their children are adhering to social distancing guidelines.
  • All patrons must wear a mask while not in the pool or able to remain 6 ft. from others.
  • Adult Swim is 20 minutes to allow lifeguards to wipe down high touch surfaces. All patrons younger than 18 will exit the pool at this time.
  • Patrons are responsible for disinfecting pool furniture prior to use. Disinfectant will not be provided.
  • Showers and changing rooms are closed. Restrooms are limited to two people at a time.
  • Toys and balls are not allowed in the pool.
  • Wearable flotation devices will be allowed in the pool, subject to the discretion of the lifeguards.
