Fort Myers aquatic facilities will close if heavy rain prevents lifeguards from seeing the bottom of the pool, or if lightning strikes within a 10-mile radius of the facility. The Fort Myers Aquatic Center, Golfview Pool, and S.T.A.R.S. Complex all use the Weatherbug system for real-time updates on weather conditions. The pool will remain closed for a ½ hour (30 minutes) following the last lightning strike. During this time, patrons are to remain off the pool deck.
Fort Myers aquatic facilities will close for public swimming if the forecasted weather calls for temperatures of 70 degrees or below; or at the supervisor’s discretion.
The City of Fort Myers Aquatic Center gives rain checks during inclement weather to patrons who have been at the facility for less than one hour with a receipt. No refunds are given due to inclement weather.
