The pool is currently closed for necessary repairs to cracks in the pool’s fiberglass surface. A pool repair specialist was consulted and provided a cost to repair the cracks with a new fiberglass coating. This work will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks once scheduled. The dome will also be retrofitted with vents to improve air circulation. This will allow for better circulation during COVID-19 but will also allow us to keep the dome on year-round. Additional fans may be installed if needed.
We are pleased to announce that after the above repairs have been completed, we will be opening the pool and have designed a modified program based on CDC health guidelines for public pools.
The South Lake Tahoe Recreation Complex has the only year-round public pool in South Lake Tahoe. This six-lane 25-yard pool is indoors during the winter months and outdoors during the summer months. Both public recreation and lap swim times are available each day. When the pool is indoors, the air temperature is maintained at 70 degrees and the water temperature is 81 degrees.
Swim suits are required. No t-shirts, cut-offs, or inflatable toys or flotation devices are allowed. Any child not potty trained must wear plastic pants over their swim diaper.
All non-swimmers must be accompanied by an adult. Children must be 3 feet 6 inches tall at the shoulder or pass the 45-foot swim test to be able to swim without an adult in the water with them. Non-swimmers may use loaner Coast Guard approved life jackets as long as an adult is in the water.
