Pāhoa Pool to Open Friday, June 1
The Pāhoa Community Aquatic Center has been shut down since the county was using the facilities for evacuees.
The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation announced that the Pāhoa Community Aquatic Center will open on June 1, 2018 for recreation and lap swimming on a shortened schedule as follows:
- Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday: 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The pool may close with little or no notice due to conditions caused by the lava and eruption events.
Pool users are reminded that the Pāhoa Reginal Recreation Facility is currently being utilized as an emergency evacuation shelter, and all users must check in with security at the gate entrance.
The evacuees that are utilizing the recreation facility as an emergency shelter are going through a tough time, and we ask the public’s kokua in respecting the privacy of the evacuees. All pool users are asked to remain within the aquatic center area while using the pool.
