Tampa, FL June 23, 2011 - Mayor Bob Buckhorn has announced that he has allocated funds to open the Interbay Pool for eight weeks this summer beginning at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 29, 2011. Pool hours will be Wednesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for open swim.
The decision was made in response to community requests. Interbay Pool had been closed for the last three summers as a cost saving measure. "Having our young people in a structured and healthy environment is far better than being unattended and unsupervised," said Mayor Buckhorn.
Interbay Pool will be open through Friday, August 19. School starts Monday, August 22. With the addition of Interbay Pool, the City now has nine pools open for summer swim season. A Tampa Parks and Recreation Department Rec Card is required for pool use and can be purchased at any City of Tampa Parks and Recreation Department facility. For additional information, please contact Parks & Recreation Director Karen Palus at (813) 274-7730 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
