Brazil City Park Board President Ruthann Jeffries told The Brazil Times recently the pool will officially open, weather and water temperature permitting, June 2.
The opening this year is one day earlier than it was last year.
"This is about our normal time," Jeffries said. "So many of our lifeguards are in high school."
Jeffries added the water temperature for the pool has to be 70-degrees or above before the pool can officially open. She said last year, the park had to wait a couple of days before it could officially open the pool to the public due to water temperature.
Officials started pumping water into the pool Monday and are preparing for the opening.
"We try to have it in there for a couple of weeks before so we can get it up to that temperature," Jeffries said. "We really need that time to get the water temperature up. Really, we can't do it any earlier than that.
"We're pretty much on schedule."
This year, daily hours have been set for noon-4 p.m., Monday-Saturday. Admission is $2.50 for all 5-up. Children ages 0-4 will be admitted free.
A season pass for one person will cost $60. Family passes for a four-person household will cost $120. Each additional person will cost $15 extra.
Adult swim will take place this year on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:30-11:30 a.m., at a cost of $1.
In addition, swimming lesson dates and times will be available after the opening.
Those interested in lessons are encouraged to call the pool after the opening date for more information.
This year, Jeffries said the board elected to change its policy on pool parties.
Pool parties will be available in two-hour time slots. For example, parties will be available Monday through Saturday, from 6-8 p.m., or 8-10 p.m.
The policy change called for pool parties to be available on Sundays, from 1-3 p.m., 3-5 p.m., 5-7 p.m., and 7-9 p.m.
"In the past, Sundays have always been an open swim for the public," Jeffries said. "Then we had two pool parties available for Sunday.
"This year, because of our budget cuts, we were trying to think of ways that we can save money. We didn't take in that much revenue on Sundays. We decided at least on pool parties, we do make a little bit of money. Rather than lose money on that day, we thought we'd try just having four pool parties."
Cost for a pool party consisting of 1-100 people is $160, while cost for a party consisting of 100-250 people is $180. Cost for a party consisting of 250-500 people will be $270.
