Because the lifeguard positions in Plano are often filled by high school and college students who are returning to school shortly, Plano’s outdoor pools will close on weekdays beginning August 7.
Plano Parks and Recreation said in a Facebook post that the outdoor pools will start being closed on weekdays, as many lifeguards on duty will return to school on August 9.
In addition, Jack Carter Pool will close early due to low staffing numbers. It will move to weekends only with the others on August 7, then completely close for the season on August 14. Jack Carter is the only center closing completely this season.
