With warm temperatures finally returning to the area, the Plainfield Park District’s Ottawa Street Pool will open this Saturday for the summer season.

Staff training for the pool season has been underway since earlier this month, and pool manager Andy Dunfee said all preparations are complete including some much needed improvements.

“Visitors to the pool this year will see that we have made a number of improvements to the building, including a complete renovation of the locker room and shower facilities,” Dunfee said.  “I am sure our guests will be happy with the new amenities and look forward to a full season of fun and sun at the Ottawa Street Pool.”

The long winter and number of school days lost due to bad weather has resulted in a change of pool hours during the first week of operation, as many schools will still be in session.  The pool will be open from 1-8 p.m. this Saturday through Monday for the holiday weekend, May 24-26, but on Tuesday and Wednesday May 27th and 28th the hours of operation will be limited to 6:30-8 pm. and on Thursday and Friday, May 29-30, the pool will be open from 5-8 p.m.  Regular seasonal hours will resume on May 31.

Early Bird season passes for the Ottawa Street Pool are still on sale at the Plainfield Park District’s Recreation/Administration Center, offering a 30% discount for those who purchase their passes no later than Sunday, June 8.

I know that this is perfectly normal timing for pool openings but with this weird spring we had (or didn't have?), it feels like it's crazy early for this! But, if the Ottawa Street Pool says it's summer, then it's summer, so here's to a good one.
