Robeson County Press Release 


Bradford Outdoor Pool 

May 2, 2020 

Due to the unpredictable future of COVID-19 and after careful consideration, Robeson County Parks and Recreation has decided to close Bradford pool for the entire summer. The decision was made to keep the pool closed in the interest of public health and staff safety. 

The safety of our participants is our number one priority. The logistical challenges of being able to provide these services safely would severely limit the number of our citizens who would be able to access these services. While this was a difficult decision, we have determined that the challenges described above outweigh the benefit to the few that we would be able to safely serve. 

Opening the pool created the following safety challenges and concerns related to Covid-19: 

  • • Need to minimize the amount of people within our pool facility, limiting our ability to ensure equitable access 

  • • Need to require visitors and staff to maintain a social distance and wear masks when they cannot 

  • • Need to increase cleaning and sanitizing frequencies required for surfaces, bathrooms, picnic area (requiring additional staff) 


Parks and Recreation Department staff is dedicated to supporting and providing recreational progress. We are exploring ways for the community to continue to engage with us via virtual community and fitness programming during these opportunities in the near future. For questions regarding the Bradford Pool please contact Robeson County Recreation Department at 910-671-3090.
