Splish, splash, it’s time for Odessa residents to head for the pools.
The Floyd Gwin Pool and the Sherwood and Woodson family aquatic centers will reopen at 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday and throughout the Memorial Day Weekend. Spraygrounds at UTPB and McKinney will also open from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday.
“We’re expecting a huge crowd since the pools were closed last year,” Odessa’s Communication Director Devin Sanchez said. “Everyone is very excited.”
All pools will be fully staffed and vendor equipment was repaired this week so pool-goers will be able to pay with cash, Sanchez said. The pools will remain open through Aug. 1.
