Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- It's almost pool season in Phoenix. The Parks and Recreation Department said it will open city pools over Memorial Day weekend.

City pools will then reopen for the full 2010 season on June 5.

Regular hours for the 20 city pools this summer will be 1 to 7 p.m. six days a week. All city pools will be closed Fridays.

Daily admission is $3 for adults and $1 for seniors age 50 and over and youth age 17 and under.

Because of a grant from the Steele Foundation, Harmon, Maryvale, Paradise Valley and Perry pools will open one weekend early, May 22-23, from 1p.m. to 7 p.m.
