It may be one of the coolest places under the sun - especially when the heat of summer hits.
Only one day until the opening of Cary’s Community Pool, 255 Briargate Rd.
Park District officials have been prepping the big pool, as well as the tot pool, in anticipation of the pool’s opening at noon on Friday, June 1. The pool will remain open for the summer season until Sept. 3.
Individual swimmers, seniors and families can purchase their Chilly Willy pool pass at the Cary Community Center, adjacent to the pool, or on line using Rapid Registration.
Swimmers without passes must pay a daily guest fee. All rates and hours of operation are available on the Cary Park District website.
Kathie Hughes, director of communications and marketing for the park district, said the district added new classes this year and has scheduled plenty traditional private, semi-private and group swimming courses.
The park district has swimming classes for those age 3 months and older.
“New this year, we will have water polo cases, adult private swimming lessons, and a ‘Transition to Training class,’ which focuses on swimming technique and endurance,” Hughes said.
The Cary Park District also will host its annual Splash Into Summer open house from noon to 5 p.m. Friday, June 8. For this event, guests are welcome to visit the pool free of charge. Plenty of activities and games are planned for the children, Hughes said.
