Summer is around the corner and this year, Robins will help people beat the summer heat by opening both outdoor pools.

The pools will be open daily from noon to 7 p.m. Heritage will close on Mondays, while Horizons will close on Thursdays for cleaning. They will open May 25 and will remain open on Memorial Day. The Heritage pool will be closed May 29.

In addition, this year there will be no charge to use the facilities, although you must be a cardholder to access the pools. Cardholders will be allowed to bring guests to the pool, but must remain with the guests at all times.

Karan Taggert, Robins aquatics director, said opening two pools allows them to offer more swimming lessons than last year.

"We are offering more than 50 classes, ranging in age from six months and up. It's never too late to learn to swim," she said.

She said there will concessions at both pools.

To register for swim lessons or for more information about the pools, call Outdoor Recreation at 468-4001.
