Because of ongoing maintenance at Drake Springs Park, the Drake Springs Family Aquatic Center will now be closing for the season Sunday, August 27.

The pool is located at 301 South Fairfax Avenue.

Because of the early closing at Drake Springs, the city has pushed back the closing date at Laurel Oak Family Aquatic Center until Sunday, September 3.

The pool is located at 3401 East 49th Street.

Both locations will be open from 1:00 to 8:00 PM Saturday and Sunday until their updated closure date.

The change in closing dates has led the city to alter the schedule of the Swimming Gone to the Dogs event. It will now take place Wednesday, September 6, from 5:30 to 7:00 PM at Laurel Oak Family Aquatic Center.

Dog owners are welcome to bring one or two dogs to swim. No registration is required.

Dogs must follow off-leash rules and have updated shots.
