Pool Opens May 25

Outdoor pool opens for summer May 25

Lap swimmers are already enjoying the Outdoor Lap Pool, but soon the rest of the JCC outdoor pools will be open for families to enjoy. On Saturday, May 25, the Family and Seng Jewelers Wading Pool will open for the summer with expanded hours!

New this year, the pools will not close until 6:45 p.m. on weekends. Last year, families enjoyed earlier hours in the morning, opening the family and wading pools at 9:30 a.m.

“Our members asked for more time during the weekends last summer and it was a great idea to add for this summer,” said Liz Stumper, Aquatics Director.

Other changes include the renamed Dive In Diner. The former Outdoor Café was ready for a refreshed look and feel and will feature all new signage and new food options when the pools open. An updated menu will be released in next month’s CenterPiece.“The Outdoor Café needed a new direction,” said Tara Stone, Assitant Director of Membership and Wellness. “We are listening to members and seeing what other food options we can offer, especially healthier food.”

In fact, even the name “Dive In Diner” came from members. Benedicte Partin suggested it on Facebook and members voted on the new name from a list of choices. The new Dive In Diner will open on Sunday, May 26.

The JCC is accepting applications for summer memberships. The summer season will run from May 25-September 15. Family memberships cost $495 and include discounts on summer camp. Individual memberships cost $350 and also include the use of the fitness facility. For more information, contact Suzy Hillebrand, Membership Director at 238-2791 or shillebrand@jewishlouisville.org.
