LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some public pools are ready to open in Louisville, but swimmers will need to plan ahead to get a spot at one of the three pools opening this week.

In a release, Louisville Parks and Recreation said pools at Algonquin, Fairdale and Sun Valley will open for the 2020 season, which ends Sept. 5.

Pool users will have to register to swim by calling Metro Parks Aquatics at (502) 897-9949, no more than seven days in advance. All three pools will have an initial maximum capacity of 45 swimmers per two-hour session (session 1 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. and session 2 from 2-4 p.m.) for a total of 90 swimmers each day. General admission is $2 for each patron.

Fairdale's pool opens at 11 a.m. Tuesday, July 7. Sun Valley opens Wednesday, July 8, and Algonquin opens for the season on Thursday, July 9. Each pool will be open two days a week from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. All three pools will close on Mondays for maintenance.

The Norton Pool, located in Camp Taylor Memorial Park off Poplar Level Road, will not open this season because of leaks that need to be repaired.

If Parks and Recreation is able to hire lifeguards this summer, public pools could extend hours and open for additional days. Lifeguard classes are still available. For more information, click here

Pools will follow Kentucky's Healthy at Work Requirements as well as local guidelines for social distancing because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Swimmers will be required to practice social distancing in and out of the water and wash their hands. Visitors are also encouraged wear swimsuits to the pool, since changing areas will be limited. And no chairs or lounges will be permitted poolside to encourage social distancing.
