Hilliard Pools Set to Re-Open with COVID-19 Guidelines Lifted

Posted May 13, 2021 in Recreation & Parks by Anna Subler

Ready to make a splash this summer? The City of Hilliard is opening sales for pool memberships to all members of the general public immediately.

The opening day for both municipal pools, Hilliard Family Aquatic Center and Clyde “Butch” Seidle Community Pool, is Saturday, May 29.

On Wednesday, May 12, Governor DeWine announced that he would be lifting all health orders June 2, including those limiting attendance at public pools. As a result, the City of Hilliard determined it would lift all limitations on this summer’s pool memberships and day pass sales.

Cleaning and sanitizing will remain a priority this summer, said Ed Merritt, Director of Recreation and Parks.

“As we’ve done throughout the pandemic, finding ways to offer amenities and programming while keeping staff and residents safe is important to us,” he said.

Signage will be posted at both pools providing safety guidance to patrons and City staff will continue to take steps to clean and disinfect high-contact areas.

Restrooms, lounge chairs, and drinking fountains will be available in the same capacity as previous years. Those who plan to visit the pool will not need to register in advance or limit their visit to two-hour time slots. Patrons are still encouraged to wear a mask and practice social distancing when appropriate. For more information, go to our Pools & Passes page.
