Local pools to open, lifeguards needed

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus city website says all city pools will open for the summer on Wednesday, May 27.

In Phenix City, the pool at Southside Park off Samford road will open May 23rd. It will be open seven days a week from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.

Also in Phenix City, the Calvin Spencer Recreation Center adjacent to Meadowlane Park will reopen its pool next Tuesday.

 Since there are not enough lifeguards on staff, the pool will only be open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. When the facility is up to staff on lifeguards, it will be open Monday thru Friday at the times listed above.  Admission is $1.

Last summer, the pool at Spencer Recreation Center did not open until late summer due to a lack of lifeguards.
