CHANGES IN HOURS OF OPERATION AT THE NAT TO BEGIN JULY 1

GREAT FALLS, Montana – Beginning on Tuesday, July 1, the Natatorium will undergo changes in hours of operation. During the month of July the Natatorium will only be open to those who are participating in swimming lessons or Aquatic Solution classes. The Natatorium will be closed during the month of August for general maintenance.

Users who participate in lap swimming or water aerobics at the Natatorium are encouraged to use the Mitchell Pool during the months of July and August. Lap swimming is available at Mitchell Pool, Monday through Thursday from 10:15 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.

Swimmers who usually use the Natatorium during recreational and open swim times are being asked to take advantage of our Neighborhood Pools (Jaycee or Water Tower Pools) or the Electric City Water Park during our Montana summer months.

Starting Tuesday, September 2, the Natatorium will re-open at 6 a.m. and resume their normal schedule (6 a.m. – 8 p.m.). However, it will be closed on Fridays and all official City holidays. Private rentals will be available on Fridays as well as on Saturday evenings and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The changes in the hours of operation will result in cost savings, which will help improve the financial position of the Natatorium.
