What to expect when attending the Weston Aquatic Center during the 2020 season.

The 2020 season for the Weston Aquatic Center poses some challenges for staff to prepare and maintain the facility based on recommended practices from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and Centers for Disease Control regarding COVID-19.  Patrons of the facility will also need to know their experience at the Aquatic Center is going to be different then it has been in the past. Implementing these best management practices is a way to accommodate children and families so we can operate a safe and enjoyable aquatic facility. Patrons will need to be mindful of best practices for social distancing, hand washing, etc.  Special efforts are needed for cleaning and working with patrons to observe recommended practices such as social distancing.  As we begin the season, this requires things such as, additional personnel, reduced attendance, and closure of slides and play structures.  As the season progresses, we hope to be able to make changes such as opening other parts of the facility and modify some practices but, there can be no certainty of this right now. 

The following is a list of instructions about the Weston Aquatic Center for the 2020 season:

1.                  Entry into the Weston Aquatic Center for the 2020 season will only be allowed by making a reservation and payment by calling 715-359-6114 or through the village website at www.westonwi.gov/poolpass. NO WALK INS WILL BE ALLOWED THIS SEASON.

2.                  When making reservations please note - NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN FOR ANY REASON (This includes “no shows,” cancellations, weather (storms or air temperatures below 65 degrees), fecal accidents, or dropping below the minimum patron count of twenty people).

3.                  Reservations will be available for up to 200 people per session for three sessions per day from Monday through Saturday and two sessions on Sundays. 

4.         There will be 3 gates to enter the facility. To accommodate social distancing patrons will be assigned a specific gate for entering during the reservation process.  Gates 1 and 2 will have 67 reservation spots each session, Gate 3 will have 66 reservation spots each session. Gates 2 and 3 will be closed once the pool opens so you must arrive on time for your swim session. You will be asked to exit out the same gate when you leave.
