Pahoa swimming pool open seven days a week

The Pahoa Community Aquatic Center is now open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. seven days a week.

Additional operation days are possible because of the hiring of additional lifeguards, according to the county Department of Parks and Recreation.

The pool reopened in February on an adjusted schedule, nine months after it closed as a result of the 2018 eruption of Kilauea volcano in lower Puna.

The pool’s showers served as hygiene stations for evacuees at the emergency shelter established at Pahoa District Park, and repairs were needed because of damage caused by the eruption.

Call the Aquatic Center at 965-2700 for daily updates, recreational swim times and to learn more about available programs.
