Pools are open! Pools are open! Weekends only until June 18, then full schedule


It's getting hot, and just in the time, the city's outdoor pools have opened. Starting last weekend, the outdoor pools are open on the weekends, and starting June 18, they'll be open every day (except one day a week.)

In our area, there's the Banneker pool at Georgia and Euclid and the Upshur pool at Upshur and Arkansas. Both are currently open noon-6pm on Saturday and Sunday. Starting June 18, they'll be open every day except one -- for Banneker, that's Thursdays, and for Upshur, that's Mondays.

Banneker (pictured above) is big and very popular -- there are sometimes lines to get in. They also added a concession stand for some cold beverages and light snacks. Upshur is smaller and has more families, but also a nice place to swim.

Here are their full hours, and here are the rest of the pools.

Banneker:
  • Lap Swim: Mon - Wed & Fri - 8 am to 10 am
  • Mon - Wed & Fri - 11 am to 8 pm
  • Sat & Sun: 12 pm to 6 pm
Closed Day:

Upshur:
  • Tues - Fri - 11 am to 8 pm
  • Sat & Sun - 12 pm to 6 pm
Closed Day:
