Community Pool to Open July 6th

Pawtucket – The City of Pawtucket and the Parks and Recreation Division have announced that the City of Pawtucket will be opening the Fairlawn Veterans Memorial Park Pool on Saturday, July 6th at 11 a.m. after the hiring of two certified lifeguards.

“We are pleased to announce that the pool will be open for the public, especially our youth,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “I appreciate Parks and Recreation’s efforts to fill the positions in less than a week after the prior lifeguards had backed out, and thank everyone who stepped up in assisting with finding qualified lifeguards to keep our residents safe while they cool off in the hot summer days.”

“We are excited to get the community pool up and running,” said Recreation Manager John Blais. “Thank you to all for your positive community support and outreach, which helped us hire the right, qualified lifeguards. This is a testament to the great people who live in the neighborhood.”

The community pool will be open 7 days a week from July 6th through Sunday, August 18th. Currently, the pool will close July 9th, 10th, 17th, and 18th due to scheduling conflicts with the certified lifeguards. Parks and Recreation is working on possible alternatives to open on these dates.

The pool will operate during the following hours.

  • Monday: Noon – 5 p.m.
  • Tuesday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
  • Thursday: Noon – 5 p.m.
  • Friday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
  • Saturday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
  • Sunday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Weather permitting, free lunches will be served from Monday to Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the days the pool is open with the expection of Monday, August 12th. The program will run through Friday, August 16th.
