City Outdoor Pools to Stay Open More Days

Posted: 08/12/2020
Families will have more opportunities to enjoy swimming at the City’s two outdoor pools this summer.

Ed Cothren Pool, 1737 Reynolds St., is open daily 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1-6 p.m. on Sundays through Monday, Aug. 24, then switches to weekends-only for the two weeks through Labor Day.

(Most summers, Ed Cothren Pool closes the day that schools open, which was moved back this year to Monday, Aug. 24.)

Inskip Pool, 4204 Bruhin Road, also is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1-6 p.m. on Sundays. Starting Aug. 24, Inskip Pool will offer swimming on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Labor Day.

(Most summers, Inskip Pool is only open on weekends after Knox County classes resume.)

“We’re extending the pool season, because we understand that many families’ schedules and needs are different this year,” Parks and Recreation Director Sheryl Ely said. 

Admission to Inskip Pool – with its 285,000 gallons of water, two low dives, a high dive and a nearby greenway walking loop – is $4 per person. Admission to Ed Cothren – 275,000 gallons, a diving board and accessible ramp – is $3 person.
