Greenwood Park Pool Opens June 16 - passes available to purchase

Update

We are excited to announce that Greenwood Pool will open on June 16 and passes are available to purchase now online at wwwlprd.net. 
Unfortunately, this year we had significant problems filling the required pool positions that we need to open and operate BOTH pools. To run both Greenwood and Reynolds (Bliss) Pools we need to staff 30 lifeguard positions and we received 13 lifeguard applications  TOTAL. 
Recruitment efforts were done online via social media, local media coverage, Masslive job postings, direct recruitment at the high school, all the area colleges, high school sport teams, etc. Everyone who operates pools needs lifeguards. This is a nationwide issue this year, the lifeguard shortage is being experienced at beaches, lakes, ponds, and public pools. 
The decision was made this week to move ahead with only opening Greenwood pool as this pool is needed for camp operation and has the splash pad.
