Molalla pool reopens
After being closed for several months because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Molalla Aquatic Center is reopening.
The doors open Monday, Nov. 2, for lap swim, water fitness classes, tot time and family swim. All require reservations. Visit molallaaquaticcenter.com.
"Confused? Call us and we will help you navigate the new waters," Molalla Aquatic said on its Facebook page.
The pool staff can be reached at 503-759-POOL (7665).
To protect staff and patrons, the pool will follow guidelines from the Oregon Health Authority, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Clackamas County.
Lap swim begins Nov. 2; one-hour slots are available Monday through Saturday. According to MAC, lap swim is a time dedicated to serious swimmers. Those interested should reserve their lane before entering the building. Swimmers can reserve a lane seven days in advance but no earlier.
Tot Time is an hourlong swim time reserved for parents or guardians and children. It is designed for children age 3 and under. Two or three swimmers from a family can share one lane. It takes place from 11 a.m. to noon Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. During registration, choose one of the days, and you will be registered for the full session from Nov. 2 through Dec. 23.
Family Swim is a two-hour session from 1-3 p.m. or 3-5 p.m. Saturdays. Families should reserve their time before entering the building. The aquatic center will not supply toys for this time, but families can bring their own and use them with lifeguard approval.
