[ARCHIVED] Spring Hill Aquatic Center's opening delayed due to pandemic

Coronavirus update square

May 15 update: Due to the impact of COVID-19, we’ve been researching options for the 2020 season at the Spring Hill Aquatic Center. Last night, May 14, City Council discussed options on what this season may look like. Factors for opening — or not opening — include Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines including social distancing and sanitization measures; staff training restrictions; availability of cleaning products and personal protective equipment; and the economics of opening among other factors. The Council asked staff to explore creative options for a potential opening later this summer. City Council expects to make a final decision on the Aquatic Center at their regular meeting 7 p.m. Thursday, May 28. We hope to provide further information on swim lessons, season passes, facility reservations, events and more at that time.

Original update May 1: We’re looking forward to this summer but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the season could look a little different. Unfortunately, it appears we will not be opening on May 24 as originally planned per Gov. Laura Kelly’s phasing criteria, Ad Astra: A Plan to Reopen Kansas.
Over the last month, City staff has been working with local, state and national organizations to determine what the season could look like if we are able to open. Some potential changes that those organizations are weighing include social distancing guidelines and what that means at the Aquatic Center, personal protective equipment (PPE) and increased sanitization measures among others.
Further details on opening, season passes, facility reservations, events and swim lessons will be forthcoming. We remain hopeful to see you this summer.
