LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) - Montelongo Pool, located in Rodgers Park at Bates Street and North Gary Avenue, will remain closed for the remainder of the summer season for necessary repairs.

During preseason-opening procedures, crews discovered a leak in the water balance tank, which is an essential filtration component to keep the pool water level constant. During initial repairs, the contractor discovered more issues that need immediate attention. Repairing these will take significant time, so Montelongo Pool will remain closed for the remainder of the pool season.

The three other City-operated swimming pools including Clapp Pool, Mae Simmons Pool, and Maxey Pool are all currently open Tuesday – Sunday, 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Adults 18+: $3, Youth 3-17: $2, Under 2: Free
