Back in May, I told you that the Montelongo Pool will not open with the other pools on Memorial weekend due to much-needed repairs. The pool was then supposed to open on June 11th, but that didn't happen.

Folks who love this pool got some really sad news today. Montelongo Pool will remain closed for the rest of the season because of these repairs.

According to the City of Lubbock, "during preseason-opening procedures, crews discovered a leak in the water balance tank, which is an essential filtration component to keep the pool water level constant. During initial repairs, the contractor discovered more issues that need immediate attention. Repairing these will take significant time, so Montelongo Pool will remain closed the remainder of the pool season."

Here's where you can cool off for a low price in the summer.

Entry to each swimming pool is $2 for kids 17 and under and $3 for adults. Children who are 2 years old and under get in free.

Summer passes are as follows:

Family Splash Pass: $150 for a family of four

Individual Splash Pass: $65 for children and $90 for adults

30-Day Splash Pass: $45 for children and $60 for adults

7-Day Splash Pass: $10 for children and $14 for adults

The pools are open Tuesday through Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. You can learn more about the pools on their website.

REMINDER: Last year the City of Lubbock Parks implemented a mandatory Safety Break from 3 - 3:30 p.m., as well as a Safe Capacity limit at all four pool locations. During the 30-minute Safety Breaks, all swimmers will exit the pool.
