Florence announces Aquatic Center will not open in 2021
Florence announces Aquatic Center will not open in 2021.
Following discussion with Florence City Council and per recommendation of City staff, the decision was made that the Florence Aquatic Center will not open for the 2021 pool season.
The city’s contractual obligations with the company that manages pool services, including the staffing of life guards and general operations, requires us to make a decision now. Recreational facilities are currently advised to limit their capacity to 60% occupancy.
Due to the uncertainty with restrictions and the potential of a shortened pool season if cases start to spike, the City made the tough decision not to open this summer.
We are disappointed and I am sure many of you are as well. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to a better experience and a restriction free year in 2022.
