2020 Galimore Summer Schedule

Pool Season Begins

Most would agree that Memorial Day weekend is traditionally the start of summer, and what better way to mark summer’s beginning than by the opening of a new season for the Galimore Community Pool on the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend, May 22, 2020.

Marking the eighth season of the Galimore Community Pool since its complete renovation and upgrade by the city in 2013, the pool has proven to be one of the community's most popular summer gathering spots for families and friends. Operated by the St. Augustine Family YMCA, the pool is part of the Willie Galimore Community Center.

To ensure the safety of visitors, the pool will operate according to CDC guidelines. This includes a limit on the number of swimmers allowed in the pool/ area based off of the occupancy allowed in restaurants set by the governor, practicing social distancing, and wiping down furniture after use. The bathroom will remain open, however locker rooms and indoor showering will be prohibited. The outdoor shower will remain open. 


The 2020 pool schedule (PDF), from May 22 through September 27, includes hours for family and lap swimming ever day of the week with consideration given to certain YMCA programming, including swimming lessons and swim camp. Please note that groups of six or more children will need to secure a time slot by emailing the YMCA.


The fees for the pool’s use are the same as those for the Solomon Calhoun Center, a St. Johns County facility whose program is also managed by the YMCA.

Credit cards, debit cards, and bills larger than $20 will not be accepted, but checks payable to The City of St. Augustine will be accepted. Passes can be purchased at the pool starting Memorial Day weekend. For more information about summer swimming at the Galimore Community Center, call the St. Augustine YMCA at 904-471-9622.
