Officials: 5 Boston pools won’t open this summer due to staffing issues – Boston News, Weather, Sports

BOSTON (WHDH) — City officials say five pools will not open this summer due to staff shortages.

According to the Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF), the pools that are closed due to staff shortages are the Blackstone Community Center Pool in the South End, the Clougherty Pool in Charlestown, the Hennigan Community Center Pool in Jamaica Plain, the Holland and Perkins Community Center Swimming Pools in Dorchester.

BCYF said the city has been able to hire just over half the number of lifeguards it needs for a full staffing, but is still scrambling to find more workers.

In addition to the pools closed due to staff shortages, four pools and beaches will be closed due to construction projects, BCYF said. Closed for renovations are the Curley Community Center Beaches and Pool in South Boston, the Mattahunt Community Center Pool in Mattapan, the Paris Street Community Center Pool in East Boston, and the Draper Pool in West Roxbury.

According to officials, all neighborhoods with gated pools have access to one another. The city is also redistributing what full-time lifeguards they have to all open pools to provide water programs for all.

The pools that will remain open for the summer are the Curtis Hall Community Center Pool at Jamaica Plain, the Draper Pool at West Roxbury, the Flaherty Pool at Roslindale, the Mason Pool at Roxbury, the Charlestown Community Center Pool, and the Leahy-Holloran Community Center Pool in Dorchester, the Mildred Avenue Community Center Pool in Mattapan, the Quincy Community Center Pool in Chinatown, the Mirabella Outdoor Pool in the North End, the Condon Community Center Pool in South Boston, and the Marshall Community Center Pool in Dorchester as soon as the construction is complete .
