The Collett Street outdoor pool in Morganton will close for the season next Monday (August 10). The last full day of operation this year will be Sunday (August 9).
The pool is closing earlier than normal this year due to staffing shortages, many part-time lifeguards employed for the summer season are required to quarantine themselves ahead of returning to school amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Without enough lifeguards, it is not safe to open the pool.
If you have any questions, contact the Morganton Parks and Recreation Department at 828-438-5350.
