LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - People won't have to wait until Memorial Day to take a dip in one Lexington pool.
Lexington Parks & Recreation will open Southland Aquatic Center at noon, Monday, May 22. Parks & Recreation decided to open the pool earlier because school ended earlier than normal this year.
Poolapalooza will take place on Saturday, May 27. That will be the official kickoff to the summer swimming season in Lexington, with Castlewood, Tates Creek and Woodland Aquatic Centers opening at 10 a.m.
The other city pools will open on Saturday, June 3.
