Roanoke public pools

Roanoke’s public pools are almost ready for the summer season and the thousands of visitors who will take the plunge there this year. The Fallon Park Pool will have a soft opening this weekend. The Washington Park Pool will kick off the season on June 6th. More than 16,000 people visited the two pools last summer, and Community Recreation Coordinator Cindy McFall would like to see that number rise. This is the third year that the city has partnered with the YMCA on the operation of the Washington Park Pool. Both pools are closed on Wednesdays, but at least one is open every other day of the week.
