COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - It is pool season again and The City of Covington is happy to announce that the three public pool locations within the city are opening on June 8.

Pool access is free for Covington residents in possession of a pool pass. Pool passes are currently available at City Hall, in the Recreation Department, 638 Madison Avenue, First Floor, and will be issued from this office Monday through Friday, 8am- 4:30pm through August 9.

Additionally, pool passes will be available seven days a week, beginning Saturday, June 8 through Sunday, June 16, at each of the pool locations from noon-6:00pm; the Covington Waterpark location will offer extended hours until 7pm. Residents will be required to provide proof of residency in order to obtain a pool pass.

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and will be required to complete and sign their own form. Parents and grandparents may get a pool pass for any children or grandchildren under the age of 18. Each pool pass comes with three guest passes. After June 16, residents may only get pool passes at City Hall during regular business hours.

To acquire a pool pass at any location, Covington residents will need to provide proof of residency, (a valid driver's license or state ID).  If a resident has recently relocated to Covington and not yet in possession of an ID with proof of address, a lease or utility bill showing their Covington address along with a photo ID is acceptable.
