COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Recreation and Parks Department announced Friday that three outdoor pools that were going to open May 29, are now opening on Memorial Day.
Dodge, Driving Park and Tuttle pools will remain closed on Saturday and Sunday because of the unseasonable lower temperatures but will be open Monday.
Spraygrounds at Linden, Blackburn, Barnett and Scioto Southland community centers will also open May 31.
The rest of the pools will open for the summer the week of June 7.
The city said the pools will operate daily in three, two-hour time blocks (12:30-2:30 p.m., 3-5 p.m. and 5:30-7:30 p.m.) and all visitors must register in advance.
Spraygrounds will be open seven days a week from 12-7 p.m., no registration needed.
Admission to all pools will be free, the city said.
“There’s plenty of summer yet to come, and we look forward to offering residents a fun way to stay active and keep cool during the hot weather that is just around the corner," said Paul Rakosky, interim director of Columbus Recreation and Parks Department.
