SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - The Springfield-Greene County Park Board is opening its six outdoor pools this weekend.

The Park Board says Springfield pools have more lifeguards this year, which means more pool opening days. On Memorial Day you can swim at Grant Beach, Westport, and Silver Springs pools for one dollar.

It’s part of the Park Board’s Splash and Sizzle event. If you bring a can food item, you could get in for free. The food donation goes to help the Ozarks Food Harvest.

New this year, the minimum age to be at the pool without an adult has been raised to 12 years old. All kids 11 years old and younger must have an adult present inside the pool gate.
