2020 Season

Please Note:  This schedule was set up before Covid-19 Proclamations by Governor Reynolds.  Many state and national regulations and restrictions due to COVID-19 will impact your experience at pools across the country this season. Decorah Park-Rec. staff are diligently working towards having a 2020 season at our pool, and will follow the recommendations of the Governor, Decorah City Council, the Decorah Park-Rec Board, the CDC, the Iowa Department of Public Health, and Winneshiek County Public Health when making decisions. At this time, we are looking at June 17 as the earliest possible opening date for the Decorah Pool. More information will be made available regarding specific restrictions, pool passes, and swim lessons once the opening date is set. Thank you for your patience.
