Parks Commissioner George Dusenberry has announced that the Grant Park Pool will be opening two days early on Saturday, May 25 at noon. Councilmember Carla Smith’s Opening Day Party will still be held on Monday, May 27 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
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.
The pool will reopen again on Monday, May 27, 2013. See you then!
Effective August 6, 2012 through September 3, 2012 the Grant Park Pool will be open weekdays from 3:00 PM until 7:00 PM, and on weekends from 12:00 PM until 8:00 PM. Paid admission is required throughout the rest of the season.
To help Atlanta residents beat the extreme temperatures, the City of Atlanta is waiving admission fees at the Grant Park Pool on Saturday, June 30, 2012 and Sunday, June 1, 2012. Swim all day both days from 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM for free!
The Friends of Grant Park Pool have installed a new outdoor clock at
the pool, so you’ll know how long you’ve been in the sun. Please
consider helping our efforts by clicking the Donate Now button at
www.grantparkpool.org to chip in $5 or $10 toward the cost of the
clock. Improvements at the pool such as the clock, tables, and deck
chairs are primarily paid for by dine-out proceeds and individual
donations. Any amount you donate is tax deductible!
Mention Friends of Grant Park Pool or lap swimming to access the pool from 10:00 to 1:00 on weekdays through August 8, 2012. Regular admission fees apply for weekday morning swimming. This special arrangement is not available on weekends or holidays.
The Atlanta Police Department asks that you don’t forget to remove or securely hide any valuables if you’re parking near the pool.
The large wall clock did not survive the winter, but we’ve ordered a replacement that should be installed next week.
District 1 Council Member is holding her EIGHTH annual pool party this afternoon from 2:30 to 4:30. Regular admission fees apply, but there’ll be free hot dogs, drinks and a live DJ. See you there!
