Bozeman's Bogert Pool set to open Sunday, slide closed for season


BOZEMAN, Mont. - Bozeman's Bogert pool is scheduled to open Sunday June 16, but the popular slide will remain closed for the entire season.

According to a news release from the city, the slide is closed because of recent updates in the Pool and Spa Safety Act.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission sets those rules.

The small pool will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Lap swimming will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. General recreation swimming is 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.

City leaders had discussed the possibility of making this Bogert Pool's last season.

Some expressed concerns over the age of the pool and cost to upkeep and repair.

But at a meeting in April they chose not to move forward with recommendations that would have turned it into a splash deck.

The recommendation was part of a larger discussion on a possible new aquatics facility for Bozeman.
