The new procedure has no time limit for lane use and allows multiple people to occupy a lane at a time if they are in the same household.

The city does not accept reservations and people have to wait outside the pool facility.

The following city park pools will participate in the pilot program.

  • Booth District Park
  • K. Mark Takai Veterans Memorial Aquatics Center (half of 20 lanes)
  • Kaneohe District Park
  • Capa Orono Community Park
  • Makiki District Park
  • Manana Neighborhood Park
  • Palolo Valley District Park
  • Waikele Community Park

The program will be reviewed two weeks later, and Park Recreation Department staff will monitor public comments, user behavior, preferences, and overall impact on the pool to determine if the pilot program is feasible.

As of Saturday, June 5th, only lap swimming is allowed in the city pool. Authorities say it will be done in the near future to allow more diverse uses of the city’s pools.
