PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The Palm Bay Recreation Department is currently facing staffing shortages at the Palm Bay Aquatic Center, 420 Community College Parkway SE, due to a limited number of available certified lifeguards. Certain numbers of certified lifeguards are required by law to open the pool and keep the public safe. Due to the shortage of lifeguards, there may be times when the hours of operation or maximum capacities may need to be adjusted to ensure proper lifeguard coverage at the facility.
Current fall hours for the Aquatic Center are Monday through Friday from 6:00am to 10:00am for lap swimming, and Saturday and Sunday from 1:00pm to 5:00pm for open swimming. High school swim teams are utilizing the facility Monday through Friday evenings.
