Swimming pools soon closing for the season

August 20, 2017

The summer season is coming to an end at public swimming pools in Reno and Sparks. Many of our pools will be operating on reduced schedules and most will close for the season on Labor Day, September 4, 2017. For more information about which facilities are open and when, refer to “Public Swimming Pools and Water Play Places in Reno and Sparks.”

Washoe County is also set to close up shop at its water recreation places – the pool at Bowers Mansion Regional Park in Washoe Valley and water play splash parks at Lazy 5 Regional Park and North Valleys Regional Park.

For free water play, there is no season limit on the Truckee River at Wingfield Park in Reno and Rock Park in Sparks. Both parks have whitewater features for kids and families to enjoy during visits to the river. However, use extra caution when in and around the Truckee River this summer and fall. The water has gone down from the raging flows earlier this year, but it is still higher and colder than you may be used to at this time of year.
