Same 18 outdoor city pools to open
Pittsburgh plans to open the same 18 outdoor pools this summer as it did last year, Citiparks Director Duane Ashley told City Council on Tuesday.
The pools are scheduled to be open from June 15 to Sept. 3, Labor Day.
Pool passes will go on sale June 1 on the fourth floor of the City-County Building, Downtown, and at the Oliver Bath House, 38 S. 10th St., on the South Side.
The passes, called pool tags, also will go on sale at each of the 18 pools beginning June 10. The prices of the tags are: $15 for a single youth; $30 for a single adult; $60 for a family of four; and $10 for each additional family member. Nonresidents can buy a tag for $45. Discounts are available for needy families.
Ashley said a combination of budget cuts, costly repair bills and low attendance at some pools means only 18 of the city’s 32 pools would open after Department of Public Works crews perform annual maintenance checks.
Plans are to open the following pools:
Ammon, Hill District; Banksville; Bloomfield; Highland Park; Homewood; Jack Stack, Brighton Heights; Magee, Greenfield; McBride, Lincoln Place; Moore, Brookline; Ormsby, South Side; Ream, Mt. Washington; Phillips, Carrick; Riverview; Schenley; Sheraden; Sue Murray, North Side; Westwood; and Fowler, Perry South.
