As much as we dislike to close the pool, sometimes we must if weather or low attendance dictates the situation. The following conditions will result in closing the pool: 
On deck temperature of 65° or less and/or inclement weather is forecasted 
If above 65° but less than 20 people are swimming for first hour, the pool will close early. 
Sections of the pool such as the water slide or diving well may close if it has low attendance.
