Last updated: July, 13, 2021

Michael J. Zone NRRC Pool Closes for 2021 Season; Clark NRRC Opens in Close Proximity    

Michael J. Zone Neighborhood Resource & Recreation Center (NRRC) pool is closed for repairs the remainder of the 2021 season. In light of this, Clark NRRC indoor pool –less than a half mile away – will now reopen. Clark pool was previously closed for the season due to a lack of seasonal lifeguards.

Clark NRRC pool is open from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Friday through August 6. Indoor pools will resume normal operations, Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., the week of August 9.

Summer Pool Operations 2021

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Cleveland has experienced fewer than normal candidates for seasonal lifeguarding. This has impacted day to day operations. The City has implemented the following summer pool operational changes for the 2021 season.

  • Each outdoor pool will operate 45 minute sessions to maximize customer usage. At the conclusion of each session users must leave the pool and are free to check back in to re-enter the pool. Customers must line up (first come, first serve) for each session. 
  • Each pool has a capacity limit set to assist with user safety and control.
