Petersburg’s public swimming pool located at 1216 Farmer Street will open for the season on May 27. The pool will remain open through May 29, from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm each day for the holiday weekend.

“This is the first time since COVID that the City has been able to open the pool on time,” said Marquis Allen, Director of Petersburg Recreation and Special Events. “We are pleased to offer a full season of swimming for our citizens, especially our youth.”


While school is in session, the city pool will open on the following weekends from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm:

June 3 – 4,

Beginning on June 20 through August 26 the pool will open Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The pool will remain open for the Labor Day holiday weekend, September 2 – 4, from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Parents or guardians (adults) must always accompany children 13 and under while at the pool. Other rules that must be observed include:

  • No running. Children and adults can slip on wet surfaces and injure themselves.
