Operational Adjustments

The following required operational procedures are in place for the summer 2020 season:

  • Open swim is on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • A capacity limit of 150 people is in place.
  • Social distancing while using the facility is recommended. There will be signage, audio reminders and adjustments to foot paths to help you achieve this goal.
  • Showers and water fountains will be available for use.
  • Water bottles will be for purchase, but high touch vending machines will be not be available.

What if Ford Pool is "At Capacity" When You Arrive?

Our goal is for you to have a positive, fun experience at Ford Pool. And, we know unloading the car only to find out the pool is at capacity would be a frustrating disappointment, especially for kids. Before parking your vehicle, please drive by the front of Ford Pool and look for an occupancy sign in red noting "OPEN SWIM IS AT CAPACITY" or a green sign noting "OPEN SWIM IS AVAILABLE."

We will do our best to have this sign out as quickly as possible when the pool is at or approaching capacity limits. You can also call 214.509.4770 during open swim hours to double check prior to your arrival; however, staff cannot hold spaces and occupancy is subject to change from the time that you call to the time that you arrive.
