Planet Swim Updates City Pool Public Swim Guidelines and Hours

May 8, 2020 –  City of Green Cove Springs has hired Planet Swim, LLC, to manage the City Pool for the 2020 Summer Season. As the pool manager, Planet Swim oversees staffing, daily entry rates and pool passes, and any organized activities in the pool.

Planet Swim, LLC, has updated public swim guidelines and pool hours to better protect pool patrons and staff before the City Pool opens for public swim on Tuesday, May 12, 2020.

Planet Swim will now require pool patrons to reserve their swim time in advance of arriving at the City Pool. Patrons can reserve one two-hour time slot per day and cannot reserve more than one time slot on the same day. Each two-hour time slot will allow for a maximum of ten people to swim, and time slots will be closed for reservations once the ten-person capacity is reached.

Patrons can call the City Pool office at 904-297-7070 during pool operating hours or email Planet Swim at to reserve their time slot.

            New operating hours for the City Pool are 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

            Patrons can reserve the following two-hour time blocks for swim time:

            9:00 - 11:00 a.m. (Tuesday - Friday)

11:00 - 1:00 p.m.

1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

3:00 - 5:00 p.m.

5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

Daily pool entry fees remain the same and Planet Swim staff will properly sanitize the pool area and enforce social distancing guidelines at all times.

These updated guidelines will remain in effect until lager social gatherings are deemed safe by either the state or CDC. Check the City of Green Cove Springs website and City’s Facebook and Twitter pages for any further updates from Planet Swim, LLC.
