City of Wilmington Pools Open Memorial Day Weekend

Published 05.11.17

The YMCA of Southeastern NC is excited to partner again with the City of Wilmington in operating Legion Stadium, Northside and Robert Strange Pools this summer! Along with the traditional opportunity for public swim, the Y will be providing swim lessons, water aerobics, and a number of other aquatics programs to the community.

All three pools will open Memorial Day Weekend on Saturday, May 27th from 12:00pm-5:00pm. This year, the Y is kicking off the summer pool season with a family-friendly community event. Local police officers will be there to talk with families and exhibit some of their special equipment. Additionally, Wilmington’s best food trucks will be selling delicious treats at each of the city pools!

Legion Stadium Pool: Pepe’s Taco Truck
Robert Strange Pool: The Vittles
Northside Pool: Poor Piggy Truck
 

This year, the Y has scheduled times for parents to preregister their families to avoid long lines at check-in. Anyone who is not a Y member must fill out an application before using the pools. Registration is free, but the daily fee to swim at the City Pools is $1 per child and $2 for adults. No one under the age of 18 can register without being accompanied by their parent or guardian.

The Y encourages City Pool swimmers to preregister their families so that we can avoid long check-in lines over Memorial Day Weekend! Every family that preregisters will have a chance to win FREE SWIM LESSONS!!

Preregistration will take place during the following days/times:
Legion Stadium Pool: Tuesday, May 23rd 5:00pm-6:30pm
North Side Pool: Wednesday, May 24th 5:00pm-6:30pm
Robert Strange Pool: Thursday, May 25th 5:00pm-6:30pm
