Weather Policy

  • In the event that severe weather approaches the area, the Aransas Pass Aquatics Center management will closely monitor local radar and weather reports. If necessary, the pools will be closed and guests will be asked to exit the water. The facility will remain open until conditions allow for re-opening the pools 
  • When and if severe weather will affect pool operations is impossible to predict. Therefore, Aransas Pass Aquatics Center cannot predict whether the pools will be closed when severe weather is predicted, nor can they predict when the pools will re-open after a severe weather closure.
  • Decisions will be made on a case by case basis by facility management. If the pools have closed, Aransas Pass Aquatics Center management will re-open them as soon as weather conditions allow.
