Closures at Waynesville pool
Lack of staffing has prompted the Waynesville Recreation Center to close its water park and constrain hours for the lap pool.
The water park, which reopened May 2020 with hours six days per week, has been open on Saturdays only since May 8 of this year due to staffing issues. Now, it will be closed completely until further notice.
Meanwhile, the lap pool will now close at 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays, though it will maintain its hours of 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Since reopening after the pandemic’s arrival, the rec center has been closed on Sundays.
