(Lafayette, LA) – After being closed last year because of the pandemic, the Martin Luther King Recreation Center swimming pool will reopen to the public next week. “We’re coming off a year of no activity and are eager to have the kids back this summer. There’s a huge demand for it, and we’re excited to reopen one of our pools on the Northside,” Acting Parks and Recreation Director Hollis Conway said.

Pool hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 2:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. and closed on Wednesday and Sunday. Admission is $4 for 17 and younger and $6 for 18 and older.

The O.J. Mouton Swimming Pool at the Domingue Recreation Center and the Girard Park Swimming Pool need major repairs and remain closed. Long-term plans include reopening both pools when the repairs are complete.
