Public Pools Begin Closing for the Summer

The pools at Frank Johnson & Booker T. Washington Community Centers will close for the summer at the end of the day on Saturday, July 29. Bloomfield, Memorial, & Delores A. Brooks pools will remain open and operational until Saturday, August 5. Below are pool hours for the remainder of the summer.

Many of our lifeguards are leaving town to go back to college, meaning the Recreation Department does not have enough staff to open all five pools. Attendance numbers were used to keep the most well-attended pools open. 

Public pools are located at Delores A. Brooks Recreations Center (3326 Ocmulgee East Boulevard), Bloomfield Community Center (4115 Lions Place), Frank Johnson Community Center (2227 Mercer University Drive), Memorial Park (763 Long Street), and Booker T. Washington Community Center (391 Monroe Street). The cost to get into the pools is $1.00, with an additional $1.00 to use the slide at the Delores A. Brooks Recreation Center (formerly known as the East Macon Recreation Center).
