Lynchburg Pool will open on Saturday

LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — It’s here. It’s finally here. According to Metro Mayor Bonnie Lewis the Lynchburg Pool will open this Saturday, June 11.

Just like many things in Moore County, the Lynchburg Pool exists as publicly-maintained infrastructure built decades ago that requires constant repair and upgrades to continue to be of value to the community. Combine that truth with supply chain issues and slow delivery times and the resulted in a slightly moved back opening date for 2022.

Mayor Lewis, who oversees the pool, said that Metro’s goal is always to open the pool as close to the last day of the school year as possible. This year, however, the pool required new plumbing, new designated water lines, and new filters to be operational and pass various inspections.

“Supply chain issues caused the filters to be slow to get here but now that they’ve arrived, we’re almost ready,” explained Mayor Lewis. “Now that the water quality passed inspection, we are ready to go.”

Hours of operation will be the same as previous years: Monday through Saturday from 12-5 p.m. and closed on Sundays. The admission price is $3 for ages 4-17 and $4 for ages 18 and older. Kids under three swim free and there is also no charge for supervising adults who do not swim. Locals can also purchase a season pass for up to five family members for $150 dollars. Additional family members over five can be added for $25 each.

The Lynchburg Pool is also available for private swim parties. To reserve the pool, contact the Mayor’s office at 931-759-7076. •
