The 2013 Grant Park Pool Season Approaches!

The Grant Park Pool officially reopens for the season on Monday, May 27, 2013. The pool will remain open through Labor Day. Once again Councilmember Carla Smith will help get things kicked off by sponsoring her annual opening day party from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The pool has opened a day or so early without any advance notice the past couple of years. If possible, we’ll send out a notice if we see that the pool has opened early this year.

Please mark your calendar for Six Feet Under’s annual dine-out to support the pool on Tuesday, June 11 from 4:00 PM until close. 10% of the proceeds for that period will benefit the Grant Park Pool. Any funds received from the dine-out will be given to the Grant Park Ambassador’s program, which staffs off-duty Atlanta police officers in the park on weekends and holidays. When present in the park or near the pool, the police officers have a significant calming effect with regard to noise, litter, improper parking, and inappropriate behavior. You can help Grant Park Ambassadors program directly by making a tax-deductible donation at www.grantparkpool.org.
