Cherry Hill Aquatic Center closed for clean-up

The Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation Department has closed Cherry Hill Aquatic Center for maintenance and safety procedures.

The facility is anticipated to reopen Wednesday, June 25 or Thursday, June 26.

Glass was broken and entered the pool at a depth of five to six feet.  Safety regulations require that the pool be drained to that water level so the glass can be removed and the pool cleaned to avoid patron injury.  The pool takes approximately four to six days to drain and refill.

The Longest Day of Summer special event swim scheduled at Cherry Hill Aquatic Center for Saturday, August 21, from 1:00-10:00 p.m. has been rescheduled to Saturday, August 28 from 1:00-10:00 p.m.  Staff will contact families involved in swimming lessons at Cherry Hill about schedule changes.

Noelridge Aquatic Center, Bever Pool, Jones Pool and Ellis Pool will operate according to normal summer schedules which can be found on pool pages at crrec.org.  Splash pads are also open at Cedar Valley Park, Cleveland Park, Daniels Park, Hayes Park, Hidder Park, Jacolyn Park, Noelridge Park, Redmond Park, Time Check Park and Twin Pines Park from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily.
