RICHARDSON – Richardson’s public neighborhood pools are now open for the summer swim season.

Canyon Creek, Cottonwood, Glenville and Terrace pools are open at 50 percent capacity, the maximum amount currently allowed by executive order. Capacity levels will be increased as allowed by changes in Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order. Heights Family Aquatic Center will remain closed.

“We are doing everything we can to make sure everyone feels comfortable and safe. We have staff  monitoring social distancing and when the lifeguards are not on stand, they are wearing masks,” said Doug Kierstead, athletics and aquatics manager.

Visitors to Canyon Creek, Cottonwood, Glenville and Terrace pools must bring their own chairs as deck furniture will not be available. Swim sessions will last two hours, with 30-minute closures for cleaning.
