As part of the city’s Kool Kids Pool program, kids can swim for free at several of their city pools this summer. Kids age 17 and under can swim for free at Coronado, Starlight, Encanto, Sunnyslope, Deer Valley, Maryvale, El Prado, Harmon, Perry, Roosevelt and Hermoso. Adult entry fee is for $3. Seniors age 60 and over entry is just $1.
Due to a significant decline in lifeguard staffing across the city, the number of pools opening for the summer is only half of the 29 locations.
