City of Atlanta


ATLANTA—After a year without access to city pools due COVID-19, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced the city is making pools accessible to all patrons at no cost. All 12 city pools will reopen beginning Saturday, May 29, in time for Memorial Day.

“After such a challenging year for communities across Atlanta, we are grateful that we can now provide free access to the City’s pools,” said Mayor Bottoms. “We ask everyone to enjoy our recreation facilities in a safe and responsible manner.”

In line with the most recent CDC COVID-19 Guidelines, capacity will be limited and masks are required upon entry including those not swimming. Masks are not required while swimming.

“With the end of the school year approaching and summer on the horizon, this is the perfect time for residents to enjoy City of Atlanta pools,” said Department of Parks and Recreation Commissioner John Dargle Jr.
