The New Martinsville Pool, after a season and a half out of operation, opened its door to a brand new pool Sunday afternoon. The official ribbon cutting for the pool was held Tuesday. The NM Parks and Recreation, along with the Pool Commision and the New Martinsville City staff, were all on hand for the opening.

Pool hours will be Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, 1-7 p.m.

Adult Swim is available for ages 18 and over on Mondays through Fridays, 10-11 a.m.

Those hours may differ some throughout the weeks, as evening adult swims will also be scheduled.

Admission fee is $4/ages three and over. While there will not be season passes available for this year, the parks department is offering a punch card for $20. This card will allow for five admissions with a sixth being free. They are available for sale at the pool.

Ages 10 and under must be accompanied by a responsible person age 14 and over. All of New Martinsville’s parks are tobacco free.

Glass containers are not permitted. Regular diapers are not permitted. Swimming diapers are available for sale for $1 at the pool. For information on renting the pool for parties, please call the parks department’s office, 304-455-9130. Office hours are 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m..
