“The lifeguards are going through some last minute training. The rest of her [Aquatics Director Jenda Smith’s] maintenance staff is down there making sure everything is right for what it needs to be. They’re blowing up the inner tubes, they’re just getting ready to open tomorrow,” Atkins said.
Admission for the Aquatic Center is $5 for adults and $4 for children under nine. Krug Park Pool admission costs $4 for adults and $3 for children under nine. Children under the age of three are free at both locations with a paid adult.
