Randolph Park Pool to Open Monday

Randolph Park pool will open on Monday, July 5th at 12:00 noon to Pulaski County residents only. Randolph Park pool will be open Monday-Friday from 12:00 – 6:00 P.M. Please understand due to staff constraints we are unable to open the pool on Saturdays and Sundays this season. We respectfully ask for public understanding and extreme patience with our 2021 policies. Returning back to normalcy from a global pandemic is proving to be extremely challenging all across our country. There will be a daily maximum capacity of 250 patrons allowed. A valid driver’s license showing Pulaski County residency will be required for entrance. Citizens may also gain entrance to the pool if they own property in Pulaski County.  A utility bill, tax bill or other similar document will be accepted as proof of ownership.  If providing a utility or tax bill as proof of property ownership, the name on the bill must match the name on the driver’s license.

Our main priority is to keep patrons safe. If staffing issues become a problem, we will always side with safety and not open the pool. Under no circumstances will Randolph Park pool open if not fully staffed.  A pool that is fully staffed is the only way to provide a safe and fun swim experience for county residents.  We will not compromise on safety!

We have a waitlist system in place for when we reach our capacity of 250 patrons. To be put on the waitlist you must be physically present at the park. Patrons will not be able to call in and be added to the waitlist. The waitlist application will be sent to you in a text message. It will state that slots are available for your party.  If you do not respond to the text in a timely manner, a voice call will be placed to you.  Please feel free to call the front desk at 540-674-1513 ext. 3 if you have questions. Also, please note that we will NOT have in-house concessions this summer due to our limited capacity for patron entry. We will allow food that is normally not permitted (fast food products) into this pool for this 2021 season only.

Lastly, we extend a huge thank you to our Pulaski YMCA. Jessie Woods, Executive Director, and Jack Watkins, Aquatics Coordinator, have gone above and beyond their duties in the last six weeks to get our lifeguards trained and certified.  Their leadership, partnership and willingness to lend a helping hand each and every day is a big reason the doors at Randolph Park pool are opening this summer.
