OKC Parks to rotate open days at Family Aquatic Centers

Post Date:07/17/2020 8:57 AM

OKC Parks will use a rotating schedule of open days at Oklahoma City’s two Family Aquatic Centers to balance staff availability, while still allowing both to be open for summer fun.

So far this summer, only the Will Rogers Family Aquatic Center has been open since the delayed start to the aquatic season on July 1. The COVID-19 pandemic and related public health concerns contributed to the delayed opening, and hiring and training enough lifeguards to open both centers.

In response to many requests from residents to open Earlywine Family Aquatic Center, OKC Parks will begin rotating open days at Earlywine and Will Rogers for the rest of the season.

“We are excited that the Mayor and City Council felt it was important to make these Family Aquatic Centers open and available this summer,” said OKC Parks Director Doug Kupper. “We are still recruiting lifeguards and other recreation positions for the summer and year-round.”

The rotating schedule begins Monday, July 20.
