The weather is getting warmer, school is almost out and Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner... You know what time it is! Time to open the Shreveport city pools!

Here's what Shreveport Parks and Recreation has released regarding the opening of our public pools for Summer 2014.

Shreveport Public Assembly and Recreation (City of Shreveport) will host swimming pool open houses beginning this weekend for the 2014 pool season. The open house dates are:
• Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 11 AM to 1 PM at Bill Cockrell Pool
• Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 1 1 AM to 1 PM at Airport Park Pool
• Sunday, May 18, 2014 from 2 PM to 4 PM at David Raines Pool
• Saturday, May 24, 2014 from 11 AM to 1 PM at Querbes Pool
• Sunday, May 25, 2014 from 2 PM to 4 PM at Southern Hills Pool
SPAR pool open house activities will provide youth and adults an opportunity to meet the lifeguards for the upcoming summer season. Shreveport Fire Department will also conduct water safety demonstrations. Since May is National Water Safety month, the open houses are a great way to educate our community on the importance of pool safety as well as our upcoming swim season (including swimming lessons and water aerobics). The open houses are free and open to the public.
