Parks Announcement

INDOOR POOL: The water temperature will be maintained at 89 degrees for therapeutic exercise purposes through Labor Day when the outdoor pool closes for the season. Therapeutic exercise creates light to moderate physical excursion. Exercise creating heavy physical excursion such as lap swimming, competitive swimming or other similar exercises are not recommended for a therapeutic pool. Aquatic exercise creating heavy physical excursion is recommend at the outdoor pool where the water temperature is lower. A 25- or 50-meter lap lane is available during all hours of operation at the outdoor pool and specific lap swim times are designated every day (before the pool is open for general swim). The therapeutic swim schedule can be found online, in the Summer guide or by contacting Winchester Parks and Recreation at 540-662-4946.
