The Austin Municipal Pool made a splash on its opening day of summer Monday afternoon as children and parents of all ages came out to enjoy the pool.

“I’m [looking forward to] a warm, hot summer,” Austin Parks and Rec Director Kim Underwood said.

A new addition to the pool this year are lockers on the pool deck. They are free to use and half of the lockers have Push-Button Padlocks already on them, although people are encouraged to bring their own.

Adult lap swim will be held noon to 1 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Season membership is $30 per person and ages 2 and under are free. Daily admission is $3 in the afternoon and $2 for the three evening swims.

“I want everyone to enjoy their summer and check out the pool,” said Underwood.
