“Dear PoPville,

Not sure if you’ve heard anything about this, but this morning I tried to visit a rec center gym and was told the facility was closed to adults until 6 pm for the rest of the summer. The explanation was that something happened last week at another rec center with a child in a camp or summer program, and so they’ve enacted this policy. I called to confirm this with DPR and was told this is in fact true. Do you have any idea what happened or is going on? Seems like a pretty bold move to close all rec centers to adults until 6PM for the rest of the summer. I’m sure I’m not the only one affected by this.”

UPDATE from DPR:

“All outdoor pools are open to the public (adults included) Monday – Friday from 1 pm – 8 pm and on Saturday/Sunday from noon – 6 pm. Additionally, to clarify, there were no reported “incidents” involving a child at a pool last week.

The agency is reviewing access to recreation centers during camp hours to ensure the safety of our campers. This may be the source of the confusion. However, no determination has been made and any change will be communicated with the public.”
