Louisiana state parks adjust pool schedule for end of summerAug 1st, 2011 | By William Dilella | Category: News
The Louisiana Office of State Parks is adjusting swimming pool schedules at sites around the state to ensure that visitors receive certified lifeguard supervision at pools through the end of the summer season. The end-of-summer schedules for State Park pools are:
Bayou Segnette (Westwego):
The pool will continue its normal schedule through Labor Day weekend and will be open on Labor Day. Visitors should note that the daily capacity of the wave pool will depend on the number of lifeguards on duty.
The pool remains closed due to construction.
Chicot (Ville Platte) and Lake D’Arbonne (Farmerville):
The pool will continue its normal schedule through Aug. 14, after which the pool will be open only on weekends and on Labor Day.
Lake Bistineau (Doyline) and St. Bernard (Braithwaite):
The pool will continue its normal schedule until Aug. 14, after which the pool will be closed for the rest of the year.
North Toledo Bend (Zwolle):
The pool will continue its normal schedule through Aug. 7, then open on weekends only and on Labor Day.
