Staying cool amid San Antonio's rising summer temperatures is a challenge for residents, but there's good news: swim season begins this weekend.

The City of San Antonio will officially open all 24 outdoor public pools, including the long-awaited Elmendorf Lake Park Pool at 235 Shore Drive, on Saturday, June 15.

The new Elmendorf Pool will host a free, Luau-style grand opening – with free Aqua Zumba classes, family-friendly games, contests, prizes and music –starting at 11 a.m.

"This new pool is part of the 2017 bond project and represents an investment of almost $2.2 million dollars in District 5, a huge investment for the City's Westside," stated Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales. "It's a refreshing and cool space for our neighbors to enjoy during the summer...for free!"

Visitors are encouraged to arrive at Elmendorf Lake Park in their best luau-wear, and look for additional free parking options at Our Lady of the Lake University.
