Homestead Aquatic Center Closure

Post Date:01/06/2017 3:19 PM

UPDATE: Repairs to the Homestead Aquatic Center pool will take one week longer than initial estimates. With the remaining repairs, water replacement, treating and heating, the facility is scheduled to open in mid-February.

Previously released: The Town of Chapel Hill’s Homestead Aquatic Center, 300 Aquatic Drive, will close on Tuesday, Jan. 17, for facility maintenance, that may require the closure for only a couple of days – or, for up to two to three weeks.

We regret the inconvenience to our swimmers, and will provide a schedule update as soon as possible.

Here’s where to swim during the closure:

Chapel Hill Community Center Pool, 120 S. Estes Drive, will be open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Friday; 7 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. Saturday; and 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday. These are expanded hours to accommodate swimmers.

In the spirit of partnership in the local aquatics community, during the shutdown, Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation pool pass holders will be allowed to use the swimming pools at the following locations (Pass holders will need to show their pool pass or fob and will be asked to fill out a guest form):
