Downtown pool re-opens, reveals renovations

H2O’Brien Pool welcomed its first guests of the season July 6, Parker Parks and Recreation announced.

The pool underwent renovations during the offseason, replacing the old play structure with a new one and adding two 182-foot water slides. Read more about the pool’s renovations at ParkerChronicle.net. The pool opened in 2001 and had not been updated since, according to town officials.

Town officials originally planned to welcome guests back on Memorial Day, May 25, but had to delay the opening due to COVID-19.

Douglas County received permission from the state in June allowing pools to reopen under certain guidelines. By July 1, several public pools in Douglas County were open by reservation only.

H2O’Brien Pool is open on a first-come, first-serve basis, according to the Parker Parks and Rec website, parkerrec.com. Swimmers can visit during a three-hour window either in the morning or afternoon. Metered entry will occur as patrons leave the facility.

The updated public health guidelines allows for up to 250 people in either session. The morning session begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. The afternoon session begins at 2 p.m. and ends at 5. Last entry will be at 4 p.m. Patrons must clear the site at the end of each session. Adult daily passes are $6, $5 for kids under 15.

Registration is not required. Daily admission, visit passes or memberships will be accepted, according to the site.
