Under management’s direction, Kenwood Cove will be cleared immediately at the first sign of lightning. At that point a 30-minute wait will begin. For each sound of thunder or sign of lightning, there will be a 30-minute wait. After the 30 minute wait, if there is no further lightning or thunder, the pool will open; otherwise the pool will close for the duration of the storm, opening at a later time if weather improves.
Kenwood Cove will open if the air temperature is 72 degrees or warmer and the sky is clear. On cloudy days, the air temperature must be at least 75 degrees in order to open. Additional factors such as water temperature and the forecast for the day will also be taken into consideration. Weather conditions will be checked at 8:30 a.m. (on Swim Lesson days), at 12 p.m. and again at 3 p.m.
Additionally, during times of extreme hot weather (feels like temperature is 100 degrees or more), Kenwood Cove will add an additional pool break to the daily operation.
The aquatic staff encourages patrons sign up for RecZone (click to sign up) and social media accounts to ensure that the facility will be open.
