Nixa Community Pool Opening Delayed for Repairs

Nixa Community Pool Opening Delayed for Repairs

May 25, 2023

Nixa Parks & Recreation staff have discovered a significant leak in the community pool located at The X Center in McCauley Park. Normally, we would open the pool for Memorial Day weekend, unfortunately, the need for repair will cause a delay in the opening of the pool. The Aquatics Center will remain closed until the pool is in condition to be opened to the public. At this time, we do not have an estimate for when repairs will be completed.

We understand the inconvenience this causes, especially during hot summer months when the pool serves as a popular gathering place for families and friends. Please accept our sincere apologies for any disruption or disappointment this causes for your summer plans.

For those who have already made payments for aquatics programs, pool passes, private parties, and birthday parties, if we are unable to provide the service you paid for, we will issue you a refund. To request a refund, please send an email to

The pool did not have this problem at the end of last year’s pool season, otherwise, we could have worked in the off season to make repairs. In preparation for the summer pool season, our staff began filling the pool and soon after, we noticed the significant leak on Monday May 22nd. Nixa Parks & Recreation staff immediately began working to identify the cause of the leak. The pool is estimated to be losing between 50,000 and 75,000 gallons of water per day, which means the pool cannot function as designed. Staff have not yet been able to pinpoint the exact location of the leak because it may be in the pool circulation supply line which runs under the concrete pool deck. This location makes the repair very difficult and would require extensive work and hours of repair. Once the exact leak location is identified, the city will be able to contract a qualified business to make the repairs. We anticipate this to take a significant amount of time depending on contractor availability.

While we recognize that closure of the pool is disappointing news, we encourage you to enjoy the other Nixa Parks & Recreation facilities and programs during this time.

We will keep you informed about progress of repairs and any updates regarding opening of the pool. Please keep an eye out for future communications via email, our website, and the city’s official social media accounts.

Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding as we work diligently to address this issue. Your safety and satisfaction remain our top priorities, and we are committed to resolving this matter as promptly as possible.
