Allentown's Irving Pool will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays for the rest of the season beginning July 10.
Cedar Pool is open seven days a week through Labor Day. Mack Pool is open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and Jordan Pool is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The pools are open from 12:00pm to 7:00pm.
“We have been evaluating and re-evaluating staffing and the allocation of those resources throughout the season,” said Allentown Parks & Recreation Director Lindsay Taylor. “We have hired some more certified lifeguards and we are at a point now where we can add Irving to the schedule two days a week. We will keep taking a look at the entire schedule through the end of the season.”
The city plans to close Irving for the season on August 9, Mack on August 17 and Jordan on August 25 which has been the practice over the last few years.
The city is still hiring lifeguards. Interested persons can apply through the city’s website at https://www.allentownpa.gov/Human-Resources/Employment-Openings.
Bucky Boyle Park and Old Fairgrounds Playground Spray Parks are open daily from 12:00pm to 7:00pm.
In the event of a Heat Advisory or Excessive Heat Warning posted by the National Weather Service this summer, pool admission on those days will be half price for Allentown residents only. Cedar Beach Pool is restricted to Allentown residents only on weekends and holidays.
