(Florence, Ky.) – The Florence Aquatic Center will not open in 2021.
For the second year in a year, Florence City Council, with a recommendation from City staff, has decided to keep the Aquatic Center closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a news release this week, the City of Florence said the decision comes “due to uncertainty with restrictions and the potential of a shortened pool season if cases start to spike.”
The city’s contractual obligations with the company that manages pool services also came into play. Because of staffing and general operations, the City needed to make a decision now.
“We are disappointed, and I am sure many of you are as well. We appreciated your understanding and look forward to a better experience and a restriction free year in 2022,” a statement from the City read.
