Parks & Recreation

The City of Norfolk’s aquatics facilities are operating under adjusted hours. Beginning Nov. 28, the following changes are in effect:

  1. The Northside Indoor Swimming Pool will be open Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.*

  2. The Huntersville Community Center Pool will be open Wednesday and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.*

* No pool access between 1 and 2 p.m. 

The Southside Aquatics Center is temporarily closed for necessary maintenance and safety repairs. Hours and dates of operation have been expanded at the Northside and Huntersville pools to reaccommodate classes or open swim availability needs of regular patrons.

Please contact the Parks & Recreation Department at or 757-823-4291 for details on events or courses that may be adjusted as a result of these changes.
