The city of Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation is revising its end of the season pool closing and doggie dip program schedule.
This change in schedule is due to staffing shortages that leave city facilities inadequately staffed to properly and safely operate for the public.
Mack Pool will close for the season at 7:00pm on Friday August 19
Irving Pool will close for the season at 7:00pm on Friday August 26
Jordan Pool will close for the season at 7:00pm on Monday September 5
This year also marks the 11th year of the city of Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation Doggie Dip Program. 2016 Doggie Dips will take place on:
Saturday, August 20 at Mack Pool from 12:00-4:00pm
Tuesday, September 6 at Jordan Pool from 3:00-7:00pm
Wednesday, September 7 at Jordan Pool from 3:00-7:00pm
The doggie dip program is a great way to get a chance to play, run free and swim in our city pools after they are closed for the season. Cost for the event is $4.00 for city of Allentown residents and $6.00 for non-residents. Each dog will need to be up to date on all shots and have a valid 2016 dog license. Any dog which becomes aggressive will be asked to leave. Monetary or dry food donations for the Lehigh County Humane Society are greatly appreciated.
