Potential Caveman Pool Closures

Caveman Pool 5-13-21

GRANTS PASS – The City of Grants Pass would like to alert residents to potential intermittent closures of Caveman Pool operations. The Grants Pass YMCA, which operates the pool for the city, continues to struggle to find lifeguards to staff the pool. 

In addition to the staffing shortage, a recent shutdown of a major chlorine chemical plant in Washington state has caused a chlorine chemical shortage across the West Coast.

City staff is working diligently to procure more of the required chemicals to keep the pool operational, but residents should be aware that there may be intermittent closures of the pool.

“Our swimmers’ safety is our highest priority and we know that with this heat many people are looking forward to cooling off at the pool,” said Parks Superintendent Wendy Giordano.

“I encourage people to take advantage of our spray parks at Riverside and Morrison Parks,” she said.

For additional information about pool operating hours and days, please contact the Grants Pass YMCA. Anyone interested in applying to become a Caveman Pool lifeguard, should also contact the YMCA: (541)474-0001.
