Before we know it, school will be out and temperatures will be sweltering. It almost sounds good after this extended Texas winter. Both the University Park and Highland Park pools will open for Memorial Day weekend on May 25, but be sure to check out the specifics:
In Highland Park, the Town Pool (in Davis Park) will not be open on the weekdays until school is out. Basically, you’re good for a weekend dip around Memorial Day, but for those of you who are more religious swimmers, weekday operations start June 1. The regular hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. The pool is usually closed for maintenance on Mondays, excepting Memorial Day and Labor Day.
In University Park, the Holmes Aquatic Center will open fully on May 25 also open for Memorial Day weekend, and then fully on June 1. If you need a first-time pool pass ($60), don’t go to City Hall. Passes are sold at Peek Service Center, and don’t forget your proof of residency. Driver license or utility bill will do. If you’re a veteran of pool passes, renew online ($50) or mail in your form to the Parks Department. If you purchase after May 18, those prices will go up $10. Seniors (60 and up) are $40 no matter when you buy; replacement cards are $10 at any time.
See you at the pool!
Update: Both pools will be open for Memorial Day weekend, with regular operations beginning June 1 (at both pools).
