To kick-off the summer swimming season, the City of Longview Parks and Recreation Department has scheduled Splash Day events offering free admission at Longview Swim Center and Ingram Pool.
Longview Swim Center, 1111 W. Fairmont St., will open for the summer with a free admission Splash Day from Noon – 8 p.m., Saturday, June 4. Located on the campus of Pine Tree High School, Longview Swim Center includes a recreation pool with water slide and raindrop spray feature as well as a competition pool with 8 race lanes and a diving area.
Ingram Pool, 1300 N. Tenth St., will open for the summer with a free admission Splash Day from Noon – 8 p.m., Saturday, June 18. Located at Ingram Park, the pool includes a water slide and raindrop spray feature. The opening of Ingram Pool had to be delayed by two weeks to allow for completion of maintenance to the pool liner. As a result of the construction, the Parks and Recreation Department has cancelled the Learn to Swim classes for the Summer I Session at Ingram Park. All other Learn to Swim sessions are expected to continue as scheduled.
