Memorial Pool News — Summer is SO ON, Weston!
Weston Recreation Department is all in for summer – how about you? Memorial Pool, Weston’s one-of-a-kind, grass-bordered, tree-shaded and beloved community pool will open this year on Saturday, June 12 at 11 am. The pool is located at 6 Alphabet Lane, just past Country School and before Woodland School.
Memorial Pool will be a little different this year but some things will never ever change: it will be cold for approximately two months, yellow jackets will buzz the trash cans, and much fun will be had by all who can squeeze into their bathing costumes after a year of Covid.
Now for the hours, rules, dates, liability clauses and stuff you won’t pay attention to and then you’ll call the Rec Department with questions, or post on Weston’s Community Facebook page. Yes, the Owl has lived here long enough to know these things. Check it out:

Concessions are not planned as of late March 2021. Please see the pool COVID restrictions for information on food and beverages permitted from home. Please make sure Weston Recreation knows how much you would like a taco truck there on all weekends. Just saying.
The fine print: COVID Restrictions
Guidelines governing pool attendance during COVID 19 must be followed and can change without notice. All members must agree to follow all pool rules and effective COVID restrictions. Any time restrictions are updated the Recreation Department will work with the Board of Health to update Memorial Pool policies. Any changes will be communicated in advance to the extent possible and posted on this website.
As of now, there is no need to reserve a spot daily, which had been discussed at a public information session on February 9, 2021. This may change if guidelines become more restrictive. Personal areas will be marked off on the lawn to allow social distancing from other spaces. Only members of the same household wil be allowed in each marked space. Face masks and physical distancing will be enforced.
