Dimond Park Aquatic Center opening June 15 on a reservation system

The City and Borough of Juneau Parks & Recreation Department is opening the Dimond Park Aquatic Center June 15 under a modified operation plan, which requires patrons to make a reservation for pool time.

The public can start reserving pool time this Monday, June 8 at 8 a.m. here. An individual can reserve up to five 90-minute swim sessions per week. Starting June 15, the pool will be open Monday-Friday, 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. & Saturday-Sunday, 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Older adults and people of any age with serious underlying medical conditions who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 are recommended to reserve pool time Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The reservation requirement is part of the Juneau Pools COVID-19 Mitigation Plan, which aims to protect the health and wellbeing of pool patrons and staff alike while resuming recreation activities. Other guidelines for this phase of reopening include:

  • No access to locker rooms and showers. Patrons are to arrive and leave the facility in swim gear.
  • Patrons are permitted to use lobby restrooms, but not as changing areas.
  • Members of the public and staff are required to wear face coverings in common spaces – lobby, front desk, and restrooms. If you don’t have one, face coverings will be provided. Cloth face coverings should not be worn by children under the age of two.
  • Social distancing of at least six feet should be maintained between individuals and household groups.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available upon arrival.
  • No member of the public or staff displaying symptoms of COVID-19 may be present at the pool.

To promote proper social distancing, the pool has limited and rearranged lobby furniture, installed plastic “sneeze guards” at the front desk, and installed floor stanchions and markings to direct flow of traffic when entering and exiting aquatic facilities.

Learn about upcoming Augustus Brown Pool Renovation Tuesday, Feb. 25

The City and Borough of Juneau Aquatics Board invites the community to its February 25 meeting at 5 p.m. in City Hall Chambers to hear an update on the upcoming Augustus Brown Pool Renovation Project. CBJ’s Engineering Department will talk about the current status of the project, proposed scope of work, and timeline. The public will have an opportunity to ask questions and comment. 

In October 2017, voters approved Proposition 1, which included $5 million in renovations for Augustus Brown Swimming Pool. The renovation will focus on mechanical, electrical, and plumbing issues, and address many code issues common in dated facilities. Significant work will be done on the pool liner, upper flat roof, as well as on operational components to improve customer experience, processes, and efficiency. The pool is currently scheduled to close for renovations this July and reopen spring 2021. 

For more information, contact Aquatics Manager Kollin Monahan at 586-0839 or Kollin.Monahan@juneau.org.
