Tripp Paternostro, then 1, plays in the water at the Dublin Community Pool South on June 26, 2020. It was the first day of the season for the pool which had been closed because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Both Dublin pools will open May 29 for the 2021 season with restrictions and advanced registration. 

The Dublin Community Pool South, 6363 Woerner Temple Road, was open part of last season with such restrictions. Dublin Community Pool North, 5660 Dublinshire Drive, was closed because of a renovation and replacement project.

The spray fountains at Ballantrae Community Park will remain closed for the 2021 season, said Shirley Blaine, the city's public information officer.

Season memberships will be available for purchase beginning April 14 at the Dublin Community Recreation Center, 5600 Post Road, for both Dublin residents and residents of the school district.

Labor Day, Sept. 6, also will have extended hours.

Membership rates, restrictions and protocols will be in place at both pools, according to the city’s website, dublinohiousa.gov/pools.
