It’s time for St. Pete families to break out their summer swimsuits. Beginning this Saturday, May 28, all neighborhood seasonal pools will open to the public for the summer season, as announced by St. Petersburg Parks & Recreation. Spread throughout the city, the nine pools offer affordable access to all communities, with most pools featuring slides, diving boards and picnic areas within their respective parks.
While three of the pools are currently open on limited hours, operating hours will be expanded throughout the city pools system beginning this weekend. With some exceptions, pools will be open during the afternoon hours, and entrance to most is $1 for ages 3-12 and $2 for ages 13 and up.
Many of the pools will offer special programming, such as the Friday night “Twilight Swim” at Shore Acres Pool every Friday from 7-9 pm. Swim lessons also begin next week, with five different sessions spread throughout the summer at neighborhood pools and the North Shore Aquatic Complex. Find the schedule and registration info here.
