In response to St. Louis County guidelines for reopening Public Water Recreation Facilities (PWRF), the City has made changes to the Aquatic Center operation plan for the 2020 Summer Season. With the public’s safety in mind and after weeks of uncertainty, we are excited to announce that the Crestwood Aquatic Center will be open beginning Monday, June 15.
Managing Crowd Size
To manage crowd size and maintain a safe environment, we will not allow any new non-resident memberships. Only current passholders, Crestwood residents, residents of the Lindbergh School District, and non-residents with a preexisting pass can purchase memberships. The following groups will be allowed to pay daily entrance fees with a valid ID card: Crestwood residents, Lindbergh residents who have previously purchased an ID card, and non-residents who have previously purchased an ID card. All expired ID cards must be renewed before you can purchase a daily entrance pass. Please read the operation plan for details.
Membership sales will not begin until Friday, June 5. If you have a current membership and have not yet worked with a staff member to transfer your information into the new software system, please understand additional time will be needed to get this completed.
Coronavirus Operation Plan
The Coronavirus operation plan (PDF) can be read online. Please take the time to review the guidelines. In addition to the operation plan, we will not be able to offer any before or after hour programming. If St. Louis County changes the guidelines we may be able to add programming later in the season.
