Little Mates Cove 

Notice: Due to an estimated shortfall in revenue needed to cover operating costs, Little Mates Cove will not open in 2021.  As the department evaluated all outdoor pool operations, factors including cost of maintenance, infrastructure condition, and number of staff needed to safely operate the facility, were all taken into consideration. 

Unfortunately, Little Mates Cove has some structural issues and combined with the high number of staff needed to maintain and operate the facility, the facility was not funded for the 2021 swim season.  This will allow time for staff to develop a budget and future plan on what it will take to open the pool in the future.
