The city of Decatur recently celebrated the opening of the city’s first indoor pool at the Boys & Girls Club in Oakhurst.

The official ribbon cutting was Oct. 16.

“The Oakhurst Pool is a 5 lane, 148,000 gallon indoor aquatics facility,” the city’s website says. “The pool is a partnership between the Boys and Girls Club, Decatur Active Living and Dynamo Swim. Oakhurst pool is located at 450 East Lake Dr. and the entrance is on the right side of the building. Bather loads will be limited to 50 swimmers at a time due to American Red Cross lifeguard to swimmer ratio recommendations.”

Lap swimming began on Oct. 23. The Decatur High swim team will also use the pool.

Here’s the full schedule and pricing, provided by the city:
