OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - As the temperatures rise and head for a hot stretch, the City of Omaha announced Friday morning that it would close all its outdoor public pools early for a staff event.

While the outdoors will close at 5 p.m. Friday, the city’s indoor pools will remain open:

The Omaha Parks and Recreation Department said Friday’s early closings would allow the city to hold its annual lifeguard appreciation event.

The city’s website also noted that the Hitchcock Park pool, located at 5025 S. 45th St., would be closed Saturday for a swim meet; and that all the outdoor pools will close for the season on either Aug. 1 or Aug. 8.
