It’s almost summer and that means the opening of the Shelby Swimming Pool and Splash Park! The City of Shelby will open the pool for the summer season Monday, June 3. The season will begin this last week of school, June 3 through June 6, with open swim after school from 4-7 p.m. Friday, the pool will be closed in preparation for the Shelby Water Otters swim meet, which is Saturday June, 8.

Sunday, June 9, the City of Shelby will offer a free swim day from noon to 5 p.m. Everyone is invited to enjoy our beautiful pool as we kick off summer.  

Monday, June 10, is the first full day of open swimming, with the pool open Monday through Friday, from 1-5 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.  On Saturdays and Sundays the pool will be open from noon to 5 p.m.  

Water aerobics and lap swim will begin Tuesday, June 11, from 6 to 7 a.m. Early morning aerobics and lap swimming run Tuesday through Friday.

Swim lessons will also begin the first week the pool is open. Please call Randi at the City Shop, 434-5564, to reserve a place for your children today. The cost is $25, per child.

The Splash Park, which is always free to the public, will be open when the weather warms up. The park will be open daily, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with the newest feature of the park, an ADA accessible play structure. There are lots of picnic tables and benches, but please bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy an afternoon at the Splash Park and please remember, no dogs are allowed.

Monthly passes can be purchased when the pool opens and there is a community sponsored program for those families in need of assistance to purchase passes for their children. Please visit Shelby City Hall for details.
