The opening date for Dunworth Pool will be announced soon. A new bathhouse is under construction.
Ford Woods and the neighborhood pools will be open 1 – 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon – 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Please note that pool hours and availability are subject to change based on staffing and other possible needs.
Daily admission to Ford Woods pool costs $4 for residents, and Dunworth Pool will cost $5 for residents when it opens. Daily admission at these two pools for non-residents will be $10.
Daily entry fees for all three neighborhood pools will be $3 for residents and $5 for non-residents.
Residents may also purchase a 10-visit pass for any of the pools. The pass will be $40 for Dunworth, $30 for Ford Woods and $20 for the neighborhood pools, and can be purchased at the pool sites. 10-day passes do not have to be used consecutively, meaning residents can use them at any time during the summer.
