Brookhaven opening public pools this weekend; appointments not required

Water Safety Tip

Public pools in the city of Brookhaven will open this weekend.

Starting Saturday, June 27, residents can visit the pools at Murphey Candler Park and Lynwood Park.

Poolgoers will only be able to visit in designated time blocks that last for about two to three hours. Appointments are not required; rather, it will be a first-come, first-served process. Lynwood’s maximum capacity is 20 people per time block, and Murphey Candler’s is 35.

Staff will clean all pool areas between the time blocks. The specific times vary each day; a full schedule can be found on the city's website.

The pool decks will not have furniture, but visitors are welcome to bring their own chairs and urged to practice social distancing.

Admission to the pools costs $3 per child, $5 for adults and $1 for seniors. Season passes are also available for purchase, but they do not guarantee entry if the pools are at capacity. Credit card payment is encouraged.

“We’re looking forward to another great season, even if it’s a little unusual this year,” Brookhaven Parks and Recreation Director Brian Borden said in a statement.
