The Hillyard public swimming pool reopened Wednesday after a delay caused by a boiler issue.

Spokane Parks & Recreation confirmed the reopening in an email Wednesday afternoon.

“Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we worked through some unexpected mechanical challenges,” the email reads.

The Hillyard Aquatic Center is open from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for open swim Monday through Saturday, along with the Comstock, AM Cannon, Liberty, Shadle and Witter pools. The Comstock, AM Cannon and Hillyard pools are also open 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays this summer, while the Liberty and Shadle pools are open 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The open swimming season runs through Aug. 26. A free SplashPass is required for entry, and poolgoers can register online before arriving.
