Mayor Chris Beutler today announced a new program to encourage families to participate in water recreation activities on Friday nights at Woods Pool.
Through the $5 Family Night Swim program, families can swim at Woods Pool, 3200 "J" St., from 6 to 8 p.m. on eight Friday nights this summer for a $5 admission fee. The $5 Family Night Swims begin on Friday, June 12 and continues through Friday, August 14. The evenings of Friday, June 19 and Friday, July 31 will not be included in the Family Night Swim program due to previously scheduled swim meets at Woods Pool.
"Swimming and water recreation activities can be fun and healthful for families," said Mayor Beutler. "We recognize that current economic conditions may limit some families' ability to participate in swimming. We hope that many families will take advantage of the $5 Family Night Swims at Woods Pool this summer."
Woods Pool is one of ten outdoor pools operated by the Parks and Recreation Department. Information regarding pool hours, admission fees, swim and diving league, and swim lessons are available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov or by calling 441-7960.
