City Pools

Open July 1

The public swimming pools operated by the City of Wilmington’s Parks and Recreation Department open for the season on Wednesday, July 1. The following COVID-19 guidelines will be followed:

  • The Department of Parks and Recreation has taken precautions to protect the public from COVID 19 by placing signage at all city pools.

  • Masks and hand sanitizer will be supplied.

  • A dedicated staff person will be at each pool throughout the summer responsible for cleaning and sanitizing according to State public health guidelines.

Refer to the schedule below for locations and days the pools are open and closed.

The pools are staffed by Red Cross-certified lifeguards, and feature changing facilities and showers. There is no cost to use the pools during public swim hours. While the pools are open to everyone, patrons under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Please refer to the Aquatics Dress Code for information about the swimwear permitted at the City's aquatic facilities.
