YORK — After inclement weather in June, July is shaping up to be a busy month at York Parks and Recreation’s Family Aquatic Center.

Haylie Zima of York Parks and Rec said that people seemed anxious to finally get splashing. Even so, she said, weather safety must always be kept in mind. “We cannot open when there’s lightning,” Zima said. In the event of unfavorable weather, pool visitors can check the pool’s status by calling Parks and Rec or visiting their Facebook page.

Provided the weather behaves, York Parks and Rec has extra events scheduled to add to summer fun at the pool.

Midnight swim is scheduled July 12 from 10 p.m. – midnight, for anyone who wants to spend a summer night swimming under the stars. A “Kooky Carnival” is the evening of July 18. Attendees will get to enjoy carnival food, play carnival games and engage in some friendly competition. Parks and Rec will also host a Beach Party July 26, complete with water limbo, water balloon fights and more.

Thrifty Thursdays and Floaty Fridays remain popular, Zima said.

The pool is also available for rental, with rates for after hours (8 p.m. – 10 p.m.) and Saturday Morning Splash Party Rental (10:30 a.m. – noon)

The Family Aquatic Center has been a hot spot to cool down in York since 2005.
