Allen Parks and Recreation will add open swim times at Ford Pool beginning July 4 with limited hours and several operational adjustments. This reopening addition continues the phased-in approach to operations as Allen Parks and Recreation considers state guidelines on pool facilities, health and safety.
Summer season at Ford Pool will begin Saturday, July 4 and end Monday, September 7. The pool will be open on Fridays through Sundays for the open swim times listed below.
As a reminder, Ford Pool will be open Mondays through Thursdays for registration based programming like Learn to Swim and City of Allen Swim Team (COAST).
The following required operational procedures are in place for the summer 2020 season:
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.
