Bad Weather Policy:

In all cases, swimming is not allowed during severe weather warnings or when lightning has been seen. If the described weather exists prior to the daily pool opening, the pool shall remain closed until the bad weather passes. Should the threatening weather come after opening, all swimmers will be cleared from the pool and seek temporary shelter until swimming can resume. Threatening weather conditions lasting longer than one (1) hour may warrant the closing of the pool for the day. Due to the fact that weather is something that cannot be controlled, the City of Terrell does not issue rain checks or refunds. For questions, comments or concerns please contact the pool at 972-551-6669.

Disclaimer: The City of Terrell reserves the right to close the pool if usage falls below a reasonable number of guests.
