Bachman Pool Reopens for Lap Swimming


We are excited to announce that Bachman Pool will reopen for lap swimming beginning Monday, August 17. It has been five long months since we had to close our doors due to COVID-19 and we know you are as anxious to get back in the pool as we are to see you. We are starting our path to normal operations with lap swimming only. Three sessions - morning, mid-day, and early evening, - will be offered Monday thru Friday, with sanitizing between each one. Lane reservations can be made up to 48 hours in advance online or by calling us at 214-670-6273. Cost is $3 per 40 minute lane reservation.

The reopening comes with new protocols designed to maximize safety for both swimmers and staff. A short video explains these protocols and lets you know what to expect when you visit. We encourage you to view it in advance. Some of the highlights include:

  • Lane reservation process
  • Mask requirements when not in the water
  • Temperature screening
  • Showers are not available
  • New sanitation procedures

We are counting on you to follow these procedures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and ensure that our reopening is successful. A successful reopening will allow us to expand programming and operating hours as community health guidelines allow.  Remember, we are all in this together!
