Shreveport city pools open June 7
They’re once again under the management of the non-profit ROCK SOLID
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Shreveport city pools open for the summer at 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 7 under the management of the non-profit, ROCK SOLID, spokeswoman Shelley McMillian said.
The city confirms the contract was awarded to ROCK SOLID, after much controversy.
“Every pool season, we have some concern...so they’re always this nervous anticipation about getting the pools open on time,” SPAR director Shelly Ragle said.
One parent told KSLA they’re glad the pools are back open.
“It’s safe because it’s police here, there’s lifeguards, and I can see them. I can watch them. No guns can be brought in. It’s safe. I feel better bringing them to the pool, than taking them to the park,” mom of four, Brittney Pouncy, said.
🌊 1-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday
🌊 1-5 p.m. Saturday
🌊 2-6 p.m. Sunday
Admission is $2.50 per person except at Southern Hills, where it’s $3.50 apiece if you want to swim and slide. The city says the swimming season ends Sunday, July 31 for all pools except Southern Hills, which ends on Labor Day. After July 31, Southern Hills’ pool will open only on the weekends until Sunday, Sept. 4.
