Pool staff making preparations for season

Waggoner Community Pool will soon be open to for children and adults of all ages to cool off this summer and make a splash.

“By the 24th we hope to have the pool open and ready for everyone,” Parks Department head Danny Matthews said. “This Sunday we are going to have a cleaning day, it will look totally different. Kids will be pulling weeds, mowing and getting it cleaned up. We have our staff hired and are just about ready to go.”

“We will open pool on May 24 at noon and close at six,” pool manager Rita Kaster stated. “Adult daily admission is $4 (18 year and up), $3 daily admission (17 year old and under). If patrons are in pool they must pay, this includes infants. Sunday we are open 1 to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, hours are 12-6 pm. We will be closed on Sunday, June 8, for graduation.”

The pool will be available for booking parties.

“We are excepting parties for evening pool parties at this time. They are from 7 to 9 p.m. Cost range from $150 to $225 depending on how many people, and then we know how many guards will be needed.”

The pool will also offer swimming lessons again this year.

“Swim lessons will be two weeks in July and water aerobics are pending with Tonya Campbell. The pool is not heated so it is very cold at beginning of the season,” Kaster added.
