TOPEKA, KAN. – Shawnee County Parks + Recreation pools and aquatic centers open June 22. Aquatics information including a list of facilities, admission prices, swim lessons and rentals may be found online at parks.snco.us. SCP+R has three major aquatic centers and four community pools.
As Shawnee County remains in Phase 3 of the Plan to Re-Open Shawnee County Kansas, aquatic facilities will open at 50 percent capacity of patrons. All aquatic facilities will have a “safety break” every hour on the hour so staff can disinfect commonly touched areas such as railings, slides and diving boards. Restrooms will be cleaned every half hour. Patrons may ask staff to disinfect lounge chairs before patrons use them. Aquatic centers and pools w cleaned every morning and evening as well.
Popular pool punch passes are available. The passes are a less expensive alternative to paying full admission at the gate:
