Area residents can get cool in the pool now that Columbus' city pools are open for the 2008 season.
Pool hours are noon-6 p.m. Wednesday-Friday and 11 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, said Carson Revell of the Columbus Parks & Recreation Department. They're reserved for private pool rentals on Mondays and Tuesdays, he said.
For Muscogee County residents, pool admission is $1 for kids 11 or younger, $2 for those age 12-17, $3 for those 18-54 and $2 for folks 55 or older, he said. It's an extra $1 for out-of-county residents.
Swimmers are required to get ID cards, which can be issued at the pools. Adults need to show photo IDs; children need a Social Security number or birth certificate.
