Alpine Pool season closes Aug. 22
Due to a shortage of lifeguards, Alpine Pool will have its last day of operation on Thursday, August 22.
All Rockford Park District swimming pools and Standfield Beach were anticipated to close for the season on Sunday, August 25.
Even with the lifeguard shortage, we will continue to operate within our guidelines for safety. Closing Alpine Pool three days early will allow our limited staff of lifeguards to serve at the other sites to meet safety standards and still meet the needs for public swimming, said Jay Sandine, Aquatics & Tennis manager.
Sand Park and Harkins pools and Levings Lake will continue operations through August 25.
Sand Park Pool is located at 1041 E. Riverside Blvd. in Loves Park, and is on a public transportation line. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 1 to 7 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. (weather and attendance level permitting).
James Lesley Harkins Pool is located at 910 Acorn St. in Fairgrounds Park, and does not charge an admissions fee. Hours of operation are Sunday through Saturday, noon – 6 p.m.
Standfield Beach at Levings Lake is at 1420 Pierpont Ave. and is open Wednesday-Sunday from noon to 7 p.m. and is also free.
