Tucker Pools to Open for Memorial Day Weekend

Tucker poolsTUCKER, Ga. (May 21, 2020) – With safety at the forefront of their planning, the City of Tucker will open both city pools Saturday for the summer season. Kelley Cofer Park pool and, for the first time as a public pool, Smoke Rise Bath & Racquet Club will be open for swim starting at 11 a.m.

The City’s Parks and Recreation Department is taking exact measures to ensure social distancing for pool users. Swimmers will have to register for a specific two-and-a-half-hour time period each day. Deck chairs will be spaced out at least six feet apart. There will be 30-minute periods every three hours where all chairs, common touch areas and bathroom facilities will be sanitized between swim sessions.

“Our staff has done a lot of study and a lot of research on how best to accomplish the goal of safely opening these pools,” said Parks and Recreation Director Rip Robertson. “We think that this swim season, while different in many ways from any before, will be our best yet.”

The City of Tucker assumed responsibility for Kelley Cofer Park pool from DeKalb County in 2018. Tucker acquired the privately-owned Smoke Rise Bath & Racquet Club, located at 2088 Glacier Drive, earlier this year. Both pools will be open six days a week, with Cofer closed for maintenance on Tuesdays and Smoke Rise closed for maintenance on Wednesdays.
