Lincoln City Pool schedules annual dog swim and pool maintenance
The ever-popular Dog Swim will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 2 (Labor Day) at the Lincoln City Pool.
Well-behaved dogs of all breeds are invited to swim and play in the pool. Be sure to bring a favorite ball or toy – and a camera! Humans may wade, but not swim, with their canine friends. Admission to the dog swim is free with a donation of canned or dry pet food for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter, or a cash donation to the future Lincoln City Dog Park.
Immediately following the dog swim, the Lincoln City Pool will close for annual maintenance, from Sept. 3-15.
The closure provides an opportunity for deep cleaning and repairs following a busy summer season. Also this year, the facility’s aging boiler will be replaced with a new, energy-efficient unit. Due to this work, the lockers rooms will be closed as well.
The community center’s weight room, cardio room, indoor walking/running track, indoor rock climbing wall, basketball gym and meeting rooms will remain open during the pool closure, and all fitness classes will continue as usual.
Aquatic pass holders are welcome and encouraged to use all fitness areas for the duration of the pool closure. A special senior “dry land” class will be held 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays while the pool is empty.
The Senior Center and Senior Mealsite program will also continue to operate.
“We know there will be some ‘chlorine withdrawal’ out there, but this is a good time for all of our dedicated swimmers to change up their exercise routines and try something new,” Gail Kimberling, community center director, said, adding, “and for those who must swim, the Newport Pool has graciously agreed to honor Lincoln City aquatic passes during our fall closure.”
The Lincoln City Community Center is located at 2150 NE Oar Place. Hours are 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday; and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
