SAN ANTONIO, TX (July 16, 2020) – The City of San Antonio announces that City pools will not open this summer season and splash pads will remain closed due to the recent resurgence in COVID-19 cases.

Keeping pools and splash pads closed emphasizes the importance of avoiding gatherings, practicing physical distancing when outside of the home, and wearing face coverings,” noted Homer Garcia III, Director of San Antonio Parks and Recreation.
