With cloudy skies and a high around 53º, you may not be thinking about cannonballs and suntans today. But when it's almost 90º on Friday? You most certainly will be! 

While you dream of sunnier days, why not get a jump start on your summer and grab your Boise City Pools season pass? We're excited that the City of Boise backed off their decision to keep the public pools closed for a second summer in a row. They now feel that they have a game plan in place that will allow them to open four of the pools: Borah, Fairmount, Ivywild and the Natatorium, safely in 2021.

As we ride out the what's hopefully the tail end of the COVID-19 pandemic, the pools will be operating under some new rules this season. In order to visit the pools, you'll need to reserve your two hour block of open swim time online prior to arriving at the pool. You'll also need a season pass in 2021. Those season passes can be used at any of the four operating pools and are available for a discounted rate of $15. Seniors 65+ can get their pass for free.
