Kingman Parks & Rec kicks off summer with pool openings
KINGMAN - Area pools opened this weekend to help mark the unofficial start of summer.
Both the Centennial Park and the Grandview downtown pools opened Saturday and will be open today and Monday.
After that the pools will be open on a rotating basis, with Grandview pool open for public use Monday through Saturdays, while Centennial pool will be open Sunday through Friday.
That staggered schedule allows the city to save money while at the same time leaving room for swim meets and other events, the city's Parks and Recreation Department said.
Admission fees have changed from last year after the City Council approved rate increases for many city-sponsored activities. The cost for students 17 and under is now $1.50, up from $1, and adults are $2, up from $1.75.
Family summer passes are available for $80, up from $70 last year, and individual passes are $50, up from $45.
July 4 has been designated a free "splash day" for both pools.
Other summer events sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department include:
