Pool Closures

The pool will be closed if unsafe conditions exist or if there is an extended period of low attendance (less than 15 persons) during open swim.  Closures are determined by De Pere Parks, Recreation, & Forestry staff. Some examples of closure reasons include lightning/thunder, heavy rain or wind, unseasonable temperatures, mechanical issues, and contaminates (fecal). Once a closure is determined staff will notify any persons on site immediately and send out an alert as soon as possible.

SMS Alerts will be sent out through Civic Rec to our Summer Pool Closures & Delays activity any time pools are closed or delayed, outside of our normally scheduled closures.

Any programs affected by closures will be notified via SMS or email through Civic Rec communications. 

You are also encouraged to follow the De Pere Parks, Recreation & Forestry Facebook Page, which also posts updates on pool closures when possible.
