RICHARDSON – Richardson’s public neighborhood pools are opening July 1 for the summer swim season.

Canyon Creek, Cottonwood, Glenville and Terrace pools will open at 50 percent capacity, the maximum amount currently allowed by executive order. Capacity levels will be increased as allowed by changes in Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order.

Heights Family Aquatic Center will remain closed.

“Cleaning and maintenance have been our biggest priority over the last several weeks. We have been making sure everything is sanitized and disinfected before we start our summer season,” said Doug Kierstead, athletics and aquatics manager.

Visitors to Canyon Creek, Cottonwood, Glenville and Terrace pools will be asked to provide their own chairs as deck furniture will not be available. Swim sessions will last two hours, with 30-minute closures for cleaning.
