Doraville, GA, May 23, 2017 – The Post Reports – The Doraville Municipal Swimming Pool, located in Flowers Park, 5921 New Peachtree Road (across the street from the Doraville MARTA station), is scheduled to open on Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 27.
Visitors this year will be treated to added amenities as a result of the recent $1.7 million park renovation that included new landscaping throughout the park, additional picnic tables and pavilion areas, brand new decking around the pool and an updated pool house. The renovation was approved by the Doraville City Council as part of the city’s Master Parks & Recreation Plan and managed by Rip Robertson, Doraville Public Works and Parks Director.
Pool hours are: Monday, 1 p.m.- 8 p.m.; Tuesdays, closed; Wednesdays, 1 p.m. – 7 p.m.; Thursdays, 1 p.m. – 7 p.m.; Fridays, 1 p.m. – 7 p.m.; Saturday. Noon – 7 p.m.; and Sundays, 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Pool fees: 12 yrs. and under–$3.00; 13 yrs. and up–$5.00; and Seniors (55+)–$3.00. Season Pool Passes for Resident Family are $75.00 for up to five family members. Non-Resident Family pass $100.00 for up to five family members. Resident Individual pass is $45.00. Non-Resident Individual Pass is $55.00.
“As has been requested by residents, we did look at extending or changing pool hours to help families take advantage of not just the pool but some of the new amenities,” says Mayor Donna Pittman. “We have adjusted days and times to accommodate residents’ various schedules and have brought in a new aerobics instructor that I believe will continue our success and fun for seniors.”
“Because many people take three-day weekends either Friday-Sunday or Saturday-Monday, we have adjusted our ‘closed’ day from Mondays to Tuesdays,” adds Pittman. “This allows families on “three-day weekends” continous use of the facility. This also helps in our holiday schedule and the confusion these holidays have often caused. Two of the main summer holidays are Memorial Day and Labor Day, which are Mondays. This will eliminate changing the schedule and increase usage on those holidays. We will also be extending Monday’s hours to 8 p.m. to provide additional time for those wanting to spend extra time at the pool after work.”
Pittman also noted that the new aerobics instructor for the pool is Diane Hutchison. Hutchison has taught senior aerobics at Fleming Arena in Honeysuckle Park for many years and is familiar with Doraville and many of the seniors here. She has been certified and currently teaches water aerobics in other venues.
