Truxtun Pool Opens for the Season on May 22
Opening is One Week Before Usual Opening on Memorial Day Weekend
Annapolis, MD (May 18, 2021) – The City of Annapolis Recreation and Parks Department announced the outdoor Kenneth R. Dunn Municipal Pool at Truxtun Park will open for the season on Saturday, May 22. Daily pool rates and season pass information can be found at www.annapolis.gov/aquatics.
“This is a first-class facility that we are proud to offer to residents - and a little earlier than usual,” said Mayor Gavin Buckley. “Summer memories are waiting to be made as we work to get our City back on its feet.”
The pool reopened in July 2020 after a $4 million rebuild. The new pool boasts a new bath house and changing rooms and is fully ADA compliant. There is a snack bar, all new tables, chairs and lounges as well as plenty of shaded space for relaxing on a hot summer day. The new pool facility also has:
a six-lane, 25-yard lap pool
a leisure pool with beach entry, two curly slides and water elements
a splash pad with more water elements for the youngest kids to cool off
All persons swimming in the pool must have on proper swim attire. Swim diapers, plus eco-suits, are required for children that are not toilet trained.
COVID Protocols: We ask that everyone maintain physical distancing from those not in your group and please wear a mask or face covering while in the restrooms.
