Repairs are currently underway for the 72-year-old City Park Pool in time for the 2021 season.

During preparations, an unexpected crack was located in the surge tank in the pool at Park Road in Upper City Park on the northwest side of Iowa City.

 Repairs are underway, but will delay the pool from making its traditional Memorial Day debut. 

Once repairs are completed, the pool is expected to open on Saturday, June 5, 2021.We are looking forward to welcoming back customers for the season.

Activities will include a reading of "Julian is a Mermaid" from one of Iowa City's local Drag Queens. For more information about this event or others visit
