Joplin Aquatic Centers Open This Weekend

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

The City of Joplin’s three aquatic centers will open for the summer on Saturday, May 28th. The Joplin Parks and Recreation staff have been cleaning and preparing the pools for weeks. After a cooler than normal May, city leaders say warmer weather this weekend should bring the crowds.

“Typically the beginning of the year is really busy for us,” said Jessica Johnson, Recreation Supervisor with Joplin Parks & Recreation. “We usually have a great turnout the first weekend.”

Schifferdecker Aquatic Center will feature new 12 sun chairs built by students at Pittsburg State University. Students from PSU's School of Construction designed and constructed the chairs within a matter of months. “We’re excited to have a new seating area for guests. Prior to the chairs, guests lounged on the grass with their towels which would get muddy.” said Jessica.

Ewert Aquatic Center, located at 7th and Murphy Blvd., will be open Tuesday through Sundays from 1:00pm – 6:00pm. Cost is $2.50 for visitors 15 & under and $3.50 for visitors 16 & up. Cunningham Aquatic Center, located at 26th & Maiden Lane, will be open 7 days a week and cost $3.00 for visitors 15 & under and $4.00 for visitors 16 & up. Schifferdecker Aquatic Center, located at 4th & Schifferdecker, will also be open 7 days a week and cost $4.00 for visitors 15 & under and $5.00 for visitors 16 & up. Children 2 and under can swim for free at all three pools. The Parks & Recreation Department is also selling season passes. They are available to purchase at Joplin Athletic Complex at 3301 W. 1st Street in Joplin.

For more information about the pools, season passes, swim lessons, or prices, please call the Joplin Athletic Complex at 417-625-4750 or visit www.joplinparks.org.
