The City of Beckley’s Parks and Recreation Department has announced that the pool at New River Park will open Memorial Day weekend but after only on a modified schedule. Unfortunately, the New River Park pool will only be open this summer on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
The department just wasn’t able to find enough qualified lifeguards to be open their normal seven days a week. So they chose the days they thought could still serve the most people.
The pool will also be unable to offer swim classes this year. However, as long as there are time slot available they will be scheduling birthday parties and after hour pool parties – but only on Fridays, Saturday, and Sundays. The concession stand, offering the same menu as in the past, will be open during pool operation.
The New River Pool will be open from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm Friday and Saturday and from 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm on Sunday beginning Memorial Day weekend. The pool will be closed the weekend of July 14th due to the state swimming tournament.
