After weeks of repairs, Kits Pool is set to reopen to a limited number of swimmers this weekend.
The city’s park board said the pool will partially open for public swimming on Saturday, months after the site was damaged during a severe winter storm in January.
“As the weather has stayed consistently dry [over the past month], necessary maintenance and repairs were able to take place,” read a statement from the board.
There will only be a limited number of swimmers allowed into the pool over the long weekend. After the weekend, starting Tuesday, workers will decide daily how many swimmers to allow into the pool based on staff availability.
The statement said the city does not have enough staff to fully open the pool with the right visitor-to-lifeguard ratio.
The board said there will be space for drop-ins at the pool, but spaces are not guaranteed. Reservations open online three days ahead at noon.
