McHenry swimming spots to open Saturday

McHENRY – If the weather remains nice, the municipal pool at Knox Park and Petersen Park Beach are set to open as scheduled Saturday.

The municipal pool was filled and the heater was activated this week, the city said in a new weekly newsletter designed to keep residents informed about what staff is up to.

“Turnout is all weather dependent,” Deputy City Administrator Bill Hobson said. “We’re hoping for the weather to stay nice. That bodes well for us with turnout.”

Regular pool hours will go immediately into effect.

Open swim will be 1:15 to 4:45 p.m. and 6 to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 1:15 to 5:45 p.m. Friday; and noon to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and holidays.

Adult swim will be 5 to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 6 to 7 p.m. Friday; and 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sunday and holidays.

Petersen Park Beach will be open 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily for swimming.

The pool closes for the season in mid-August. It will not open when temperatures are below 68 degrees and during swim team events.

Information about both sites can be found at the city’s website, ci.mchenry.il.us, under the Parks and Recreation Department’s tab.
