Hawaii County’s nine swimming pools will be closed July 3 and 4, in observance of Independence Day.

Hilo’s Charles “Sparky” Kawamoto Swim Stadium, Pahoa Community Aquatic Center, Kona Community Aquatic Center and the other pools will return to normal operating hours on July 5, the Hawaii County Department of Parks and Recreation said.

To minimize impacts to pool patrons, the Department of Parks and Recreation will utilize the closure period to remove algae growth, which increases during the hot summer months, and prepare the municipal swimming pools for the busy summer swim season. Staff will post signs at each pool informing patrons of the temporary scheduling change.
