Allentown announces opening dates for city swimming pools, starting with Cedar Beach this weekend

Allentown’s parks and recreation department plans to open Cedar Beach Pool and two spray parks this Saturday, and has set the opening date for its three other pools in mid-June. Cedar Beach Pool will open noon Saturday for Memorial Day Weekend. After regular hours Monday, the pool will only open on weekends until June 16. At that point, daily operations commence through Labor Day. A change worth noting: The pool will now be open to residents and non-residents alike seven days a week beginning mid-June. Daily admission is $6 for residents ages 4 to 59, and $12 for non-residents of the same age range. Senior residents pay $2, and senior non-residents pay $4. Children 3 years of age and under are free. Residents need to bring a driver’s license, school-issued ID or other photo proof of residency to receive the cheaper admission rates.Cedar Beach Pool underwent a troubled renovation in recent years, and legal action over its design, engineering and reconstruction remains ongoing. The pool also closed prematurely last summer because of flooding issues.

Senior residents pay $2, and senior non-residents pay $4. Daily admission to Irving Pool is just $2 for residents and $4 for non-residents. Senior rates are the same.
