The Jeffersonville pool attracts approximately 9,000 people each swim season making it common to have crowds packed together, such as this pictured day during the swim season in 2019. While the pool did not open for the 2020 swim season due to COVID-19 related concerns, maintenance has been done and the pool is ready to open for 2021.

The Jeffersonville pool will be opening for the 2021 season at noon tomorrow—Wednesday, June 9.

As previously reported, the opening was postponed as, in order to open for the season, the pool needed 8-10 certified lifeguards. Although a group of potential lifeguards were found in March, they were unable to follow through with the certification process.

This past weekend, another class was offered by the Village of Jeffersonville and seven new lifeguards were certified. With one certified lifeguard the pool already had on staff, that brings the total to eight certified lifeguards for the season.

Jeffersonville Mayor Bob Kinzer explained the inspection of the pool was passed on Tuesday.

“We’re ready,” said Kinzer.

According to Stephanie Stewart, fiscal officer for the Village of Jeffersonville office, the pool will be open seven days a week from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.

The daily entry fee will be $5 per person. An individual season pass is $100. A family season pass for four individuals is $150 with a $10 fee for each person past the four members—those using a family pass must reside in the same household.

Full concessions will be offered this season. Cash or check only.

Those 10-years-old and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Stewart said there will be two free community pool parties this season—details will be released once available.

This year’s on-site manager will be Michelle Gray—who was one of the managers during the 2019 pool season. The pool season typically ends the weekend before school starts back up.

The Jeffersonville pool is located at 42 Colonial Drive, Jeffersonville.
