Federal City Pool Scheduled to Open on Labor Day

The City of New Orleans announced that the New Orleans Recreation Development (NORD) Commission will open a select number of pools on Monday, Sept. 4. This is the first year NORD will open any of its facilities during the Labor Day holiday.

Due to the holiday falling on a Monday and the current modified summer pool schedules, there is an increased need to provide residents with additional opportunities to cool off and enjoy aquatics recreation over the holiday.

NORD will open four city pools on Monday, Sept. 4, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., weather permitting. The pools that will be open and fully staffed include:
– Federal City outdoor pool: 2200 Constitution St. (Westbank)
– Gert Town indoor pool: 3411 Broadway St.
– Sanchez indoor pool: 1616 Fats Domino Ave.
– Joe W. Brown indoor pool: 5601 Read Blvd.

The four open pools will offer open swim and family swim only. Other aquatics and recreation facilities will remain closed. As a reminder, City Hall and all other City offices will be closed Monday, Sept. 4 as well. Regular operating hours at all City and NORD facilities will resume Tuesday, Sept. 5.

In addition, the Cut-off Recreation Center, 6600 Belgrade St., will be open as a cooling center on Labor Day from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.
