Beech Fork State Parks adjusts swimming pool hours as summer wanes
BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. – Hours of operation at Beech Fork State Park’s 50-meter swimming pool are being adjusted for the remainder of the summer as people begin making preparations for school.
“Our pool has been popular the past two months and we’ve had record numbers of swimmers this year due to the heat,” said Dillard Price, assistant superintendent. “However, our swimming pool open days are reduced in August as lifeguards return to college and families get ready for the beginning of the new school year. Weekends become the most popular recreational days in late summer and our pool will be open on Saturdays and Sundays.”
Beech Fork State Park Swimming Pool Schedule
Beech Fork State Park’s swimming pool will be open daily, except Mondays, through August 12, and the weekends of August 18, 19, 25, 26 and September 1, 2, and 3. The hours are Sunday, noon – 6 p.m. and Tuesday through Saturday and on Labor Day, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. The Beech Fork State Park website will post changes in dates and hours, should they occur, at www.beechforksp.com. Outdoor swimming pools at West Virginia state parks and forests close for the season after September 3.
