Springfield Pools Make Big Summer Change

The Springfield-Greene County Park Board will use a digital ID system for admitting people to outdoor pools this summer.

The pool connection includes each customer’s name, address, phone number, picture, and emergency contact.

Starting Saturday, May 27th, all swimmers ages 3 and up will need a free pool connection to enter. You can fill out an application online or on paper, then make an in-person visit to a family center or outdoor pool to have your picture taken and complete the application.

Park Board Director Bob Belote says it’s important to know who is in the pools and how to reach their emergency contact.
