New requirements in effect for city pool users this summer

Pools will open Tuesday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Pools will open Tuesday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

(WMC-TV) - Memphis city pools will be filled with swimmers splish-splashing when they officially open for the summer Saturday.

Health inspectors made their last checks and city employees have everything ready to welcome swimmers to the city's 13 different pools this weekend.

Pools will open Tuesday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. However, there is an important change this year.

"What we have new this year are access cards that are issued through the Memphis library branches. These particular cards allow you access not only to the library but also the city of Memphis swimming pools," said Deputy Director of Park Services Joseph Lee.

For those of you who want to take advantage of the city pools, City Access Cards can be picked up for free at any city library. The access cards will be used instead of pool cards, and they can also be used to check out library books.

If you have a previously issued pool identification card, you do not need to register again for a City Access Card. But you must register if you:

  • Desire to attend a City of Memphis Aquatic Facility
  • Misplaced your previously issued pool card
  • Turned 13 since your previous pool card was issued
  • Turned 18 since your previous pool card was issued
  • Have a general, non-photo ID library card but desire to attend a City of Memphis Aquatic Facility

- In order to register, all people under the age of 17 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. A valid form of identification with minor's birth date listed is required. Proof of residency is also required.

- Adults 18 years old and older will need to have a valid driver's license or other photo identification, as well as proof of residency to receive a City Access Card.

- Proof of residency requires two original, current documents issued within the last 90 days with the applicant's name and current City of Memphis address (i.e. utility bill, land line telephone bill, bank statement, rental agreement, etc...)
