Temporary Delay In Bert Lipps Pool Opening

Lewiston, ID- Due to an imbalance in the water composition caused by debris from the recent rain and flooding event, Bert Lipps Pool will not open for the season today as planned. Our team is actively working to address the issue and we expect to open this pool later in the week. 

Orchards Pool was not affected in the same way and therefore is opening for the season today. General swim hours will be from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Monday through Sunday. Family swim hours will be from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, Monday through Sunday. Check out the summer pool schedules and swimming lesson information on the City’s website at

As a reminder, Saturday swims are FREE for families with children under 16 at both pools. 

Planning a special event? City pools can be reserved for private parties starting July through August. 

Season passes for the pools are available for purchase at both pool locations. 

For more information, visit the Aquatics section of Living Lewiston, your quarterly city magazine and program guide, available at all public facilities, or online at  

We appreciate your patience as we work to ensure Bert Lipps Pool is ready for your enjoyment. We will promptly announce the official season opening date for Bert Lipps Pool as soon as the pool is balanced and an opening date is confirmed.
