The City of Temple is Opening Two Pools This Memorial Day Weekend
For many, Memorial Day weekends marks the unofficial start of summer, and that means it's pool season. The City of Temple is diving right in.
They've announced that they'll open the Lions Junction and Summit pools Memorial Day Weekend, May 29-31. The Sammons Community Center indoor pool will be open on Saturday, May 29. (Note: A membership is required to use the Summit pool.)
This time last year, families (and especially kids) were mostly stuck indoors thanks to the pandemic, but Texas is opening back up and slowly but surely working to get back to normal. (Well, as "normal" as Texas ever is.)
With pools opening, many local families can finally enjoy a day of swimming and splashing that's long overdue.
Temple's a great place to live, and we have wonderful local pools and parks. It's great to see pools starting to open, and I've already seen kids running around on the splash pad at James Wilson Park when I've taken my dog for walks there.
Our partners at News 10 predict there could be a little rain this Memorial Day weekend, but hopefully it's not enough to keep anyone from enjoying some pool time.
There are plans to open more pools in the city at later dates, so we'll keep you updated.
