Ocala preparing to implement new pool hours for city’s Aquatic Fun Centers

The City of Ocala Recreation and Parks Department will implement new pool hours for the city’s Aquatic Fun Centers.

Effective Tuesday, June 1, the Jervey Gantt Aquatic Fun Center, 2390 S.W. 36th Ave., and the Hampton Aquatic Fun Center, 255 N.W. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays. There will be two sessions each day, a morning session from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and an afternoon session from 2 to 5 p.m. Both centers will be closed Sundays and Mondays.

On Memorial Day Weekend, there will be a special extended operating schedule. The aquatic centers will open for the season Saturday, May 29 and will offer a morning session from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and an afternoon session from 2 to 5 p.m. The centers will be open Sunday, May 30 from 1 to 5 p.m. and Memorial Day Monday for two sessions, a morning session from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and an afternoon session from 2 to 5 p.m.  Following the completion of the special Memorial Day Weekend operating schedule, both centers will be closed Sundays and Mondays.

The previously advertised hours for the City of Ocala’s Aquatic Fun Centers are changing due to a shortage of lifeguards needed to maintain proper coverage and ensure the safety of pool patrons.
