The Prince William County Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism is planning to open community pools and waterparks for the 2021 summer season. Waterworks Waterpark in Dale City will open first on Saturday, May 29 to Monday, May 31 from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. each day for Memorial Day weekend at full capacity. The County plans to open other facilities on a week-by-week basis based on lifeguard staffing levels. The opening for Hammill Mill Pool is uncertain due to unexpected repairs. The status of pool and waterpark openings along with operation hours can be found at pwcva.gov/pools.
Some facilities may have reduced concessions and extra activities such as after-hours rentals will not be available due to staffing limitations.
Visitors who are unvaccinated or are not fully-vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear masks. The County will continue enhanced cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting procedures as well as comply with all applicable local and state COVID-19 laws and best practices.
“We are elated to re-open our gates this summer” said Seth Hendler-Voss, Director of the Prince William County Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism. “We hope to see everyone soon; there’s a lot of splashing to catch up with!”
The County is still seeking lifeguards for Veterans Memorial Park Pool and SplashDown Waterpark. Those interested should visit swimtest.pwcparksjobs.com to schedule a swim test and interview.
