Pool & Spray Park Capacity Increased

Effective June 4, 2020, the capacity of the Iowa Park Swimming Pool and Spray Park will increase from 25% to 50% capacity or from 86 to 173 persons.  While this falls short of the 346 person normal operating limit, it is a welcomed improvement which will allow more swimmers to utilize the facility.  The swimming pool opened for the season on Saturday May 23, 2020, and the Spray Park opened on May 29, 2020; however, the capacity has been limited to 25% due to COVID-19-related executive orders of Governor Abbott.  Executive Order No. GA-26 related to the expanded opening of Texas in response to the COVID-19 disaster which was issued on June 3, 2020 allows outdoor areas and outdoor venues, including swimming pools and water parks, to operate at no more than 50% of the normal operating limit.
