The city of Chandler Aquatics Division announced May 21 that two facilities will open for limited public swim hours—with pre-registration required—for the Memorial Day holiday weekend and the first weekend in June.

A new online registration process that gives Chandler residents priority access will help limit capacity at each facility, according to a news release from the city. Limiting the number of people at each site will serve as a social distancing measure for public health considerations, according to the release.

Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center in southeast Chandler and Folley Pool in downtown Chandler will each host two, two-hour public swim blocks each day from 12-2 p.m. and 3-5 p.m. on May 23-25 and May 30-31. Capacity at Mesquite Groves will be limited to 180 people for each two hour block, and Folley Pool will have a maximum of 75 people allowed. Folley Pool is located at 600 E. Fairview St. and Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center is located at 5901 S. Hillcrest Drive.

Registering for both blocks is allowed, however, the hour break between sessions will be used to clean and disinfect the facility and highly touched surfaces and no patrons or personal items will be allowed on the pool deck, according to the city. Each person visiting the pool will have to be individually registered. For example, a family of six will have to register each parent and all four children for that time slot, according to the city

The registration will be done through the ActiveNet system. At this time, one must be a Chandler resident to register, and the person will be required to show proof of address when checking in at the pool, according to the city. Registration will open at 6 p.m. the prior day and close 30 minutes before a session start time.


Non-residents will be allowed in the facility if capacities are not met. However, Chandler Aquatics highly encourages guests to check the activity's enrollment online before going to a facility, according to the city.

All of Chandler’s six aquatic facilities will resume normal business hours (at limited capacity) on Saturday, June 6. Locations, hours of operation and additional details will be posted on the Aquatics website.
