SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - SPAR will host swimming pool open houses for the 2018 City of Shreveport swimming pool season.

SPAR pool open house activities will give children and adults an opportunity to meet the lifeguards for the upcoming summer season and tour the pool facility.

Since May is National Water Safety month, Shreveport Fire Department will also conduct water safety demonstrations.

The open houses are free, open to the public and used to educate the community on the importance of pool safety as well as upcoming swim season, including swimming lessons and water aerobics.
