“We’re fortunate we have enough lifeguards available to open Cunningham for this weekend because it has a wide variety of amenities and features for all ages to enjoy.” said Paul Bloomberg, Parks and Recreation Director. “Although we do not have enough to staff two facilities on a permanent basis this summer, we’re pleased to open an alternate facility for the public during this weekend.”
The normal 2021 operating schedule will resume Monday, June 14, with Schifferdecker Aquatic Center being open to the public.
