Springfield's Outdoor Pools to Open this Weekend
It will officially feel like summer vacation for many kids this weekend. The Springfield-Greene County Park Board’s outdoor pools will open for the season Saturday (5/28).
Throughout the season, each of the six outdoor pools in the city will be open six days a week from 1 to 6:30 pm through Sunday, August 14th. Maintenance days are staggered Monday through Wednesday, and all outdoor pools are open Thursday through Sunday. Find a schedule and admission information here.
Meador Pool, which was closed most of last season due to a major leak, will reopen for the full season this weekend. And Fassnight Pool has been repainted, a project that took 225 gallons of paint and about 240 man hours.
Splash & Sizzle events return to select pools on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day, plus Friday and Saturday evenings in July, with all-day $1 admission, or free with a canned food item. That same admission price is available daily from 5:30 to 6:30 pm.
In 2015, Splash & Sizzle and after 5:30 admissions generated nearly five tons of canned food items for Ozarks Food Harvest.
