Lap Swimming at Holmes Aquatic Center summer 2020
The Holmes Aquatic Center will open for the summer no latter than Wednesday, July 1. The unanimous decision to provide lap swimming only was made during the May, 19 City Council Meeting.
While some cities in the Dallas Fort Worth area have decided to close their pool facilities this summer, University Park and several other local communities have chosen lap swimming as the best alternative for providing residents with some outdoor exercise and summer fun while meeting staffing considerations and effectively managing on-site social distancing requirements. As the City Council discussed during the May 19 meeting, the City will continue to evaluate all options for expanded pool use.
The City's Parks & Recreation Department is responsible for maintaining and developing eight major parks to serve a wide variety of recreational and leisure needs for residents both today and in the future. The Department is committed to providing and maintaining the parklands in a quality cost-effective manner.
