The City of Guthrie and First Capital Trolley are teaming up to provide rides to an Edmond water park after deciding not to open Highland Pool due to the low water supply.
In May, City staff elected not to open the 90-plus-year-old municipal pool due to ongoing drought conditions. Related article: City officials decide against opening municipal pool for the season
“Thanks to a partnership with the First Capital Trolley and Pelican Bay Aquatics Center in Edmond, starting Monday, June 19, Guthrie citizens can visit Pelican Bay at no cost and start booking the Trolley for future complimentary rides to the waterpark,” a spokesperson said in a released statement by the City.
The Trolley will operate Monday through Saturday. and leaves Highland Park at 11:30 a.m. and returns to Highland Park at 3 p.m.
Patrons of the Trolley will arrive when Pelican Bay opens at noon and have roughly two hours to swim and enjoy the aquatics center before heading back to Guthrie at 2:30 p.m. Those who wish to use the trolley must RSVP by noon the day before so the trolley can plan what size shuttle will be needed.
Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult to visit Pelican Bay. Any person under the age of 18 without their parent must have a signed parental form to ride the trolley.
Guthrie residents who do not wish to use the trolley can still receive free admission to Pelican Bay Aquatics Center by presenting proof of residency with a valid driver’s license or with a recent utility bill from the City of Guthrie.
“This is a pilot program to provide summer swimming to residents of Guthrie. As long as residents are utilizing the program, the City of Guthrie will continue to provide this service with an ending date of August 31.”
