LA GRANDE — La Grande Parks and Recreation beginning Wednesday, Sept. 30, is expanding the recreation swim times at Veterans’ Memorial Pool.

Rec swim times will be Wednesdays and Fridays from 7-8:30 p.m. with some new regulations, the department announced in a press release.

For now, the rec swim times will be for families only. A parent or parents must be with their children and are responsible for maintaining social distancing for their family. Spectators will not be allowed.

Pool users must come in swimsuits and follow all one-way signs. Showers will not be open. Masks are required at entry and when you exit the pools. One family at a time will be allowed to use the locker rooms after swimming and are asked to do so as quickly as possible.
