With the weather turning and more locals looking to take their workouts indoors, the Park Authority has announced a series of changes to the reservation system as the RECenter continues to reopen.
“As we move forward with our phased approach to RECenter operations, we need your help to assure that we can continue to operate safely in an ongoing pandemic,” the Park Authority said. “Beginning this fall, our RECenters will begin to offer a modified class program schedule and swim team pool rentals. Balancing these additional member needs with the requirements to assure appropriate COVID-19 safety measures will be more important than ever. Please help us ensure that we can make the most of our limited space so that all members have the greatest access possible to our facilities.”
The Park Authority asked that people only place reservations for times they will be in the facility, and call ahead to cancel if they can’t make it.
“We ask that you cancel at least 24 hours in advance so we can remove your reservation and make it available to other members,” the Park Authority said.
Starting on Monday, Oct. 5, the online reservation page is going through some changes to reflect an increase in capacity.
New reservation titles will be available for:
- Fitness Center Tickets
- Lap Swim/Water Walking Tickets
- Recreation Swim Ticket
- Aqua Flex Ticket
Under the new system, the reservation will be held for 30 minutes, after which it will be made available to others on a walk-in basis. Two no-shows result in a call from the Park Authority.
“Our primary goal remains the safe accommodation of as many current members, class participants and contracted swim organizations as possible under current COVID-19 standards,” the Park Authority said.
Reservations can be made online.
